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 color combination of rust on brilliant Gosu blue by Kawai toru enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Gosu Tetsu nagashi Memezara. Perfect under a yunomi or for serving small sweets with tea, each dish is a solid slab, 4-1/2 inches (11.5 cm) square and all are in excellent condition.
Toru was born in 1941, the son of Kawai Takeichi. He apprenticed jointly under his father and Grandfather in 1964, making him the last disciple of Kanjiro Kawai, and it is he who seems to have lived up to his mentors expectations, synthesizing the Kawai style and taking it to the next level. For more on this artist and the Kawai Family see the book Mingei, Continuity and Innovation through Three Generations of Modern Potters produced by the International Mingei Museum of San Diego.
