By Appointment is best. You might get lucky just popping by, but a great deal of the month I am out visiting artists or scouring up new items, so days in the gallery are limited.
In accordance with the request of local authorities our gallery in Kyoto will be closed from April 1st until further notice.

A soft pallet of blurred pastels blend between gold risers on this elegant form by Yoshita Yukio enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Saishoku Kinsai Hanike and dating circa 2002. It is 11 inches (28 cm) tall and in excellent condition.
Yoshita Yukio is the fourth generation head of the Kinsan Kiln in Kutani, specializing in Kinsai and Yuri-Kinsai wares. Unlike standard Kutani wares, he uses a pallet of soft, earthy or pastels with accents in gold to create a new appeal. Born in Komatsu, Ishikawa in 1960, he first garnered public attention at the Asahi Togeiten in 1985, where his entry was awarded. He has since received many awards, on both local and national levels including the Issui-kai and the Nihon Dento Kogei Ten National Crafts Exhibition and Nihon Togeiten National Ceramic Exhibition. He is held in the collection of the Ishikawa Prefectural Museum, Indianapolis Museum of Art and Komatsu City Museum among others.
