Studio Oval, a gallery of Koji Usaka's ceramic works
On my way to a nearby supermarket, I found a cool gallery on Daisan slope.
It displays ceramic works of an artist whose name is Koji Usaka(苧坂 恒治). Actually I knew it was there but it was the first time to see it was open. A person of the gallery taught me that it opened only weekends and holidays from April through December.
I liked not only the works but also the ambience of the building. I didn’t bring my camera with me and I couldn’t take any photo to show the outside of the gallery. But you can find it easily. It has a show window in which some works are displayed. If you like a pot on the photo, I recommend make a visit to Studio Oval on weekends.
For your information, the photo is from a postcard I got at the gallery.
