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 fabulous small Tsubo by the legendary Takauchi Shugo enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled O-hai Tsubo. A striking yellow tinge to the glaze contrasts with the black charring, providing a dynamic stage for the windows of raw clay revealed beneath. It is 21 cm (8-1/4 inches) tall, roughly the same diameter and in excellent condition
Takauchi Shugo was born in Tokyo in 1937, opening his kiln in Mashiko at the age of 31. He has exhibited at the Nihon Dento Kogeiten National Traditional Crafts Exhibition, Nihon Togeiten National Ceramics Exhibition and as well as Gendai Nihon Togeiten National Modern Ceramics Exhibition in addition to innumerable public and private exhibitions. He is recipient of the Order of Cultural Merrit from Tochigi Prefecture, and his works have been selected for international exhibitions (Paris, London, Denmark and America) and work by him is held in the V&A, as well as The Art Gallery of New South Wales.
