Gallery Japonesque

Homewares in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Wabi-sabi is the fine appreciation for imperfect, organic forms and materials, and the stock in trade of Gallery Japonesque. Owner Koichi Hara arranges antique Japanese bamboo baskets and contemporary ceramics alongside Kaname Higa's post-apocalyptic ballpoint-pen landscapes and Hiromichi Iwashita's graphite-coated, chiseled-wood panels that look like bonfire embers.
