Modern Japanese Ceramics Pottery Contemporary

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.
In accordance with the request of local authorities our gallery in Kyoto will be closed from April 1st until further notice.

A gorgeous orange tinted metal glaze speckles the surface of this large tsubo by Takahashi Wasaburo (who calls himself Wasa) enclosed in the original signed wooden box dating circa 1985. The tsubo is 11-1/2 inches (29 cm) diameter, 11 inches (27 cm) tall and in fine condition. Wasaburo studied under Shigaraki Living National Treasure Ueda Naokata, from whom he received his kiln name, and later under Living National Treasure Shimizu Uichi, who’s influence is evident here in the glaze. He has been displayed nationally at the Nippon Dento Kogeiten (Japanese Traditional Crafts Exhibition) among others, and is best known for his work in celadon and metal glazes. He has also presided over a number of workshops in the United States.
