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.
Tokugawa Hiroshi Ki-Seto Hai Sake Cup
Please refer to our stock # 1651 when inquiring.
Just as the coldest depths of winter are reached, after the chrysanthemum has given up and before the red or white plum is even consideration, the Ro-bai (yellow plum) is the first to step up and say the cold will not last forever, opening its dusty yellow blossoms to the harsh winter sky. This dainty looking five lobed sake cup embodies that spirit, appearing frail, but built of sturdy Seto clay with thick, hardy petals. It is by Tokugawa Hiroshi and comes enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Ki-Seto Hai, complete with Shifuku and Shiori.
Tokugawa Hiroshi graduated the Gifu Prefetural Industrial High School in 2002, studying under Living National Treasure Kato Kozo. He moved to Kakegawa City in Shizuoka in 2008, opening a kiln there in 2010. He has exhibited with the Nihon Dento Kogeiten National Crafts Exhibition, Mino Togeiten regional Exhibition, Kikuchi Biennale, Gendai Chato-ten (Modern Tea Ware) Exhibition as well as several international exhibitions garnering a number of prizes along the way and in 2017 his work was collected by the Imperial family.
