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.
Hashimoto Tomonari White Raku Chawan Tea Bowl
Please refer to our stock # 1545 when inquiring.
A deep Tsutsugata chawan tea bowl by Hashimoto Tomonari in white-Raku glaze enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shiro Raku Chawan. The deep sides rise steep from a wari-kodai split foot with a dramatic landscape of pin-holes and blanks of moon-colored clay; the thick white glaze fissured and crackled. A pearl of silver tinges the rim. It is 11.5 cm (4-1/2 inches) diameter, 10 cm (4 inches) tall and in excellent condition, directly from the artist.
Hashimoto Tomonari was born the son of a sculptor and has felt comfortable with the processes of creation since childhood. He graduated with a masters from the Kanazawa University of Art in March 2017, then relocated to Shigaraki. A visit to his humble home studio is eye opening. Although he comes across as shy in conversation, when you move on to the subject of art, he is all confidence. He was named a finalist for the Loewe Craft Prize in 2019 and is already making international waves around Asia. Work by him is held in the V&A in London, and a large sculpture has recently been installed in his home prefecture of Wakayama. Get pieces by him while you can!
