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 cheerful work by prominent 20th century Kyoto artist Suzuki Kiyoshi enclosed in the original signed wooden box. A yellow freckled ring provides the backdrop for red and green floral groups, surrounding a white blank punctuated with three haphazard camellias. The signature is written boldly on the base which is punctured for wall hanging. It is just less than 15 inches (37.5 cm) diameter and in perfect condition. Born into a long line of Kyoto potters, Kiyoshi (1903-1967) studied under Tomimoto Kenkichi and was a founding member of the Shindan Bijutsu Kogei Kai Craft Society. He was well known for sculptural works with lifelong friend Yamamoto Kakuji. He was first awarded in 1939 at the Kokuga-Kai, and first exhibited at the Bunten in 1941 where he was awarded the Mombu-Daijin Governors prize. His sons are also potters, Suzuki Kenji and Suzuki Takuji.
