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.

A modern interpretation of the six sided shuki popular in ki-seto from the Momoyama period, this in white Raku by Hashimoto Tomonari enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shiro Raku Guinomi. The fire blackened (originally white) clay sets off the thick white glazze like winter snow receding from garden stones. It is 6 cm (2-3/8 inches) across, the same height and in excellent condition, directly from the artist this year.
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. He is held in the collection of the V&A London and Los Angeles County Museum.
