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.
Yamada Kazu Contemporary Kaku-yu Oribe Chawan A
Please refer to our stock # 1859 when inquiring.
Dashes of red, black and flashes of green decorated the scored and scarred white glazed body of this magnificent Chawan by Yamada Kazu enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Kaku-yu Oribe Chawan. The form is slightly belted, to allow the bowl to settle comfortably into the palm. The very traditional silhouette however has been paddled and graffiti structures scratched into the surface. Over this has been applied an overall white glaze, with black and red ladled out on top of that. It is 12 x 13 x 8.5 cm (4-3/4 x 5 x 3-1/2 inches) and is in excellent condition. This is a prime example of the artist’s most popular style, and a great opportunity for the collector.
