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 quintessential Mimitsuki Mizusashi with loop handles by die hard Takahashi Rakusai enclosed in the original signed wooden box. This is a superb example of the form by master of the tradition. It retains both the original pottery lid and custom made black lacquered wood Kae-buta lid. The vessel is 16.5 cm (6-1/2 inches) diameter, 17.5 cm (7 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Takahashi Takusai IV was born the eldest son of the 3rd generation Rakusai in Shigaraki in 1925, given name Mitsuo. Trained under his father, in 1973 he was invited to exhibit in Los Angeles where he lectured at the University of California. He took the name Rakusai in 1976. A die hard proponent of tradition, in 1991 he received the International Arts and Culture Award from the Japan Foundation for the Promotion of Culture.
