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.

A peacock stands among abstract patterns, drying fish, birds and geometrics on this large dish by Ito Hokuto with Shiori and Shifuku enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Yusai Iro-e Kin Gin Sai Hakkaku Zara (Silver, Gold and Colored Glaze 8-Sided Dish). It is 42 cm (16-1/2 inches) across and in excellent condition.
Ito Hokuto was born in the Nakano ward of Tokyo in 1961, and grew up in a prolific time which defined modern Japan and Japanese pop culture. He graduated the Tokyo University of Fine Art in 1987, moving to advanced courses in ceramics which he finished in 1988. He then apprenticed under Living National Treasure Fujimoto Masamichi, entering his first public exhibition in 1990 at the Nihon Dento Kogei Shinsaku-ten National Exhibition of New Crafts. In 1993 he opened his own kiln in Hino City, Tokyo. He has since been exhibited at many of Japans top galleries as well as the National Traditional Crafts Exhibition (Dento Kogeiten) among many others. His work emphasizes not only traditional themes but elevates pop art in his design concept.
