Modern Japanese Ceramics Pottery Contemporary

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.

Gorgeous flowing ash covers this small bottle form by Sawa Katsunori enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shigaraki Tokkuri complete with shiori and wrapping cloth. An eye of raw terracotta clay, where it rested on its side, is surrounded by thick green crystallized ash. A superb work by this artisan. It is 5 inches (12.5 cm) tall and in new condition.
Sawa Katsunori was born in Shigaraki, son of master potter Sawa Kiyotsugu, in 1980. Growing up among the kilns, he graduated from the Shigaraki Ceramic Research Institute in 2002, then moved to an apprenticeship under the daring artist Suzuki Goro in Mino where he would remain until 2005. He has since concentrated on private exhibitions, of which he has had many including at the elite Kuroda Toen in Tokyo’s Ginza district.
