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.

Lantern Flowers (Hozuki) decorate this snow white porcelain vase by Yamada Yoshiaki enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Henko. The imagery is expertly depicted over a form which has been allowed some freedom, more like the natural shape of a stone than a traditional vase. This is very much representative of this artists style, known for these asymmetrical shapes, natural corners and exquisite palette. It is 31 x 5 x 17.5 cm (12 x 2 x 7 inches) and is in excellent condition.
Yamada Yoshiaki was born in Ishikawa, home of Kutani wares, in 1948. He studied under Yamachika Tsuyoshi and Takegoshi Taizan whose influence is apparent. He began exhibiting in 1975 with the Souzou Bijutsu-kai Art Organization. Since his works have been exhibited and awarded in a plethora of venues, public exhibitions and private galleries. His work has been collected by the Imperial household and given as gifts to foreign dignitaries.
