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 amazing, complex landscape covered in glossy copper glaze by Tsukamoto Haruhiko enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Oribe Kaki (Oribe Flower Receptacle). This is very similar in design to the piece submitted to the 35th Asahi Ceramic Art Exhibition in 1997, the year after he took Grand Prize there. It is 19-1/2 inches (49 cm) long and in excellent condition.
Tsukamoto Haruhiko was born in Toki city, Gifu, in the heart of ceramic country in 1959, and raised among the kilns of the Mino region. He turned toward ceramics at a young age, studying conversely under Nonaka Shunsei (from 1977) and graduated from both the Aichi prefectural Seto Ceramics Research Facility (1978) and Gifu Prefectural Tajimi Research Facility (1980). The following year he moved to study under Asai Reiji. He established his own kiln in 1985, capturing the worlds attention with his Grand Prix winning piece at the Asahi Ceramics Exhibition in 1996. He has been exhibited at the National Traditional Crafts Exhibition (Dento Kogeiten) and Issui Kai Exhibition among many others. He was awarded silver prize at the Contemporary Tea Ceramics Exhibition (Gendai Chato Ten) as well as being awarded at the Mino Togeiten Ceramics Exhibition.
