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.
Sugiura Yasuyoshi Hakusho Saimon Hachi
Please refer to our stock # 1510 when inquiring.
A wide bowl by Sugiura Yasuyoshi enclosed in a Department store cloth bound box signed and titled by the artist Hakusho Saimon Hachi (Bowl in color and white decoration). It is 7 inches (17.5 cm) diameter and in perfect condition.
Sugiura graduated advanced studies under future Living National Treasures Tamura Koichi and Fujimoto Nodo (Yoshimichi) at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music ceramic art department in 1975. His work is overtly influenced by natural themes, and usually decorated with colorful earth tones. He was awarded a grant to study in Africa by the Musee Tomo in Tokyo in 2008. In 2013 he received the JCS (Japan Ceramics Society) award, one of the highest honors for a potter in Japan. His stone form installations can be found in museum gardens throughout Japan, including the Tochigi and Gifu Prefectural Museums and the Aichi Ceramic Art Museum. In recent years he has been creating ceramic flowers in an attempt to convey the power of nature through the brief life of a flower. For more see Toh Volume 18, which was dedicated entirely to him.
