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.

Guest Book
A covered-box of white glazed clay by Koike Shoko enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Kai-no-Futamono (Shell Lidded Receptacle). It is 18 x 14 x 13.5 cm (7 x 5-3/4 x 5-1/2 inches) and is in excellent condition.
Born in 1943, Shoko graduated Japan’s top art school (the Tokyo University of Art) in 1969. Eschewing the world of public Exhibition, Shoko has concentrated on private venues and museums. Her list of exhibitions both within Japan and out is extensive, with works in any number of important public and private collections including the National Museum of Modern Art Tokyo.
