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.
Perfection! Incredible Porcelain vase by Hayama Yuki
Please refer to our stock # 1589 when inquiring.
Flowering Blue Topaz vines fringed with gold tangle about the perfect elongated form of this elegant vessel by Hayama Yuki enclosed in the original wooden box accompanied by his personal hand written narrative (also in its own wooden box). The vase is 24 cm (9-1/2 inches) tall and in excellent condition. According to the 21st century Museum in Kanazawa Hayama Yuki: begins by composing a story then creates a porcelain work to accompany that story. Many of his stories have their origins in history…which is depicted with powerful figurative expression. Hayama Yuki’s works are characterized by rich narrative character and matchless etsuke technique.
Hayama Yuki was born in Arita, the main porcelain production center in Japan, in 1961 and began working with ceramics at the age of fifteen. At 23 he established his own studio and kiln , with his first Solo exhibition in 1990. Since then, his work has been shown all around Japan, as well as Europe and the Americas. His works are inspired by the forces of nature - water, flowers, trees, animals, sky, earth, with meticulous attention to detail. Hayama is also a historian and a writer who integrates these aspects into his work. He researches extensively to determine the artwork’s theme, then researches the theme in-depth. Conceptualizing, he writes a story, crafting a narrative on which the work is based. By writing, the image is formed in his mind.
