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 striking work of heavy glass by Suzuki Genta enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shizuku Kaki (Dripping Vase). Thick dollops of glass run like giant rain drops over the surface. It is 36 cm (14 inches) tall, and in excellent condition.
Suzuki Genta was born in Kyoto in 1971, graduating the prestigious Doshisha Universtiy in 1994. That same year he packed up and went off to Sweden where he studied at the Kosta Glass School, graduating in 1996. He then travelled Europe, learning under Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg at the Verrerie de Nonfoux in Switzerland, then back to Sweden where he worked under Ulla Bostrom at the Aister Glass Studio, then Peter Kuchinke at the Lauscha Glass Factory in Germany. He studied for 8 months with Anders Wingard at the Baskemolla Glass Studio in Sweden in 1997, then went to New Zealand for six months under Ola Hoglund before 3 months under Simone Cenedese at Linera Vetro in Italy, returning to Japan in 1999. He established the Genta Glass Studio in Toyama prefecture in 2003 and has lived and worked there ever since.
