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.
Exquisite Sugimoto Sadamitsu Ash Glazed Pottery Platter
Please refer to our stock # 1754 when inquiring.
A singular square platter of raw clay surrounding a pool of liquefied blue ash by Sugimoto Sadamitsu in the original signed wooden box. It is about 27 cm (11 inches) across, in perfect condition.
Sugimoto Sadamitsu was born in Tokyo in 1935. A strong adherent to the Zen tradition, Sadamitsu established his own kiln at 33, receiving the kiln name from his mentor Daitokuji priest Tachibana Oki. His Zen studies have refined the spiritual side of his work, and all of his wood fired ceramics have a quiet and confident power. He has spent his life in the research of kohiki, Shigaraki Iga and Raku wares, and is more than well known in tea circles for the discriminating soul of his works.
