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.
Hayashi Shotaro Manyosai Shino Vase
Please refer to our stock # 1518 when inquiring.
Pink and gray hues are highlighted in the charred Shino glaze on this tapering traditional form by Hayashi Shotaro enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Manyosai Mimitsuki Hanaike. It is 9-1/2 inches (24 cm) tall, 6 inches (16 cm) diameter and in excellent condition. This Manyosai style is one of his signature wares, a glaze he developed himself, and highlights of pink are especially prized.
Hayashi Shotaro (born 1947) is one of Japans true genius potters, moving far beyond tradition, glaze research and firing technique, to a place of inception. He first began with a 7 year apprenticeship under his older brother Kotaro, ending when he established his own kiln in 1974. Since then his list of exhibitions and awards has been amazing, including the Nihon Dento Kogei Ten (National Traditional Arts and Crafts Exhibition), Governors Prize and five times winner of Best of Show at the Asahi Togei Ten (Asahi Ceramics Exhibition), Chunichi International Ceramics Exhibition, and Best of Show at Gifu Prefectural Exhibition among many others. In 1994, he won the Mino Togei Taisho (Mino Ceramic Art grand prize), and in 1997 received the Shoroku Prize. That same year, he was awarded the Gifu Prefectural Art and Culture Prize. He was named an important Intangible Property of Gifu Prefecture in 2012 (the prefectural version of a living national treasure).
