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.
Koyama Suehiro Contemporary Hidasuki Bizen Vase
Please refer to our stock # 1370 when inquiring.
A beautiful open form of pale clay dashed with scarlet Hidasuki lines by Koyama Suehiro enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is quite large at 37 cm (14-1/2 inches) tall and is in excellent condition. Hidasuki is a distinctly Bizen technique wherein straw is placed on the piece before firing, causing a chemical reaction with the composition of the clay, heat and straw, which leaves these dark lines after the chaff has burned away.
Koyama Suehiro was born the third son of traditional potter Koyama Isso in Okayama in 1948. He apprenticed under Kaneshige Sozan before establishing his own studio in 1981. He has been awarded the Governors prize at the Okayama Prefectural Exhibition, the Grand Prize at the Issui-kai, Newcomers award at the Tanabe Museum Modern Forms in Tea Exhibition and has exhibited with the National Ceramics Exhibition (Nihon Togeiten) among many others. His research into Muromachi and Momoyama firing techniques has brought him much credit.
