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.

A simple off-white basin, like an eggshell, the precious life born, by Misaki Mitsukuni enclosed in the original singed wooden box titled Saidei Hachi. It is 12 x 16.5 x 15 cm (5 x 6-1/2 x 6 inches) and is in perfect condition. A very similar piece representing this Saidei series took top prize at the Nihon Togeiten National Ceramics Exhibition in 1993.
Misaki Mitsukuni was born in Chiba in 1951, and studied in a number of styles and locales before establishing his own kiln in 1979. He has since been exhibited at the Asahi Togei-ten, Chunichi Kokusai Togei-ten, Nihon Togei-ten (awarded) and Nihon Dento Togei-Ten (awarded). His works are in a class of their own, both form and glaze.
