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.
Contemporary Artist Ito Shin Archaic Vase
Please refer to our stock # 1470 when inquiring.

Ito Shin was born in Chiba in 1952 (not to be confused with the Shigaraki based younger potter of the same name, different Kanji), and moved to Mashiko where he studied under Kikuchi Akira in Mashiko. He has exhibited at the National Traditional Craft Exhibition (Nihon Dento Kogeiten) as well as the National Ceramics Exhibition (Nihon Togeiten) among many others.
