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 red storm swirls across the pitted surface of this superb Shino Kakehana Vase by Hayashi Shotaro enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shino Mimitsuki Kakehana-ire. It is a versatile work, perfect for the tea room. Made to stand freely, it can rest perfectly on the chigai-dana or insde the Tokonoma, a dash of color glowing in the intimate shadows. With the flattened back and lacquered iron hardware it can also be used to hang on the wall or the pole of the Tokonoma, a single peony or, perhaps for this season, yellow Ya-kiku blossoming from it’s jagged leaf at the rim. The vessel is 15.5 cm (6 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Hayashi Shotaro (b. 1947) is one of the biggest names in contemporary Mino ceramics. He first began with a 7 year apprenticeship under his older brother Kotaro, ending when he established his own kiln in 1974. Since then his list of exhibitions and awards has been amazing, including the Nihon Dento Kogei Ten (National Traditional Arts and Crafts Exhibition), Governors Prize and five times winner of Best of Show at the Asahi Togei Ten (Asahi Ceramics Exhibition), and Best of Show at Gifu Prefectural Exhibition.
