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.

An exquisite Tenmoku tea bowl by veteran potter and master of the form Miura Shurei enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Tetsu-yu Chawan. It is 12 cm (5 inches) diameter, 8 cm (3 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Miura Shurei was born in 1942, and trained in the ceramic styles of both Arita and Kyoto. At the age of 23 he established a studio at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Yamanashi prefecture creating ceramics from local clay, and established the Shurei kiln in 1971. He has been much lauded in his lifetime, with awards at the Nihon Dento Kogeiten National Traditional Crafts Exhibition, Chunichi Kokusai Togeiten International Ceramic Exhibition, Arita Ceramics Exhibition as well as the Nihon Togeiten National Ceramics Exhibition. His work has been featured in many of Japan’s top galleries, including Takashimaya, Mitsukoshi and Kuroda Toen in the fashionable Ginza district.
