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.

Incredible iridescent reds like licks of flame envelope this black Tsutsu-chawan by Hashimoto Tomonari enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Raku-yaki Yohen Tsutsu Chawan (Kiln Altered Raku Tea Bowl). Both texture and coloring, it is unparalleled among similar works I have seen by him. It is 11.5 cm (4-1/2 inches) diameter, 10.5 cm (4 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
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, another piece has entered LACMA and a large sculpture has recently been installed in his home prefecture of Wakayama. Get pieces by him while you can!
