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.

The tiger strides in his multicolored coat, an okimono by Living National Treasure Kato Takuo enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 24.5 x 8 x 11 cm (9-1/2 x 3 x 4-1/2 inches) and is in excellent condition.
Kato Takuo (1917-2005) was trained in ceramics by both his father, Kato Kohei, and at the Kyoto School of ceramics. He was soon accepted and consistently displayed at any number of National and International Exhibitions, and was named an Intangible Cultural Asset (Living National Treasure) in 1995. His research and re-development of Sansai ware remains influential today.
