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.

Iridescent red and a burst of gaseous gold cloud like some fantastical deep space event unfolds on the dark surface of this wan-gata (bowl shaped) black Raku guinomi by Hashimoto Tomonari enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Raku-yaki Yohen Guinomi (Kiln Altered Raku sake cup. This completes the phrase: The Universe in the palm of your hand. I have had several bowls by Tomonari, known for his colored effects and this is unparalleled. It is 11.5 cm (4-1/2 inches) diameter, 10.5 cm (4 inches) tall and in excellent condition directly from the artist this summer.
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.
