It is with sincere thanks to Penny Simpson, who mentioned the possibility of arranging this visit whilst showing with us last year, that we will be able to see and buy their pottery. For those of you familiar with the Penny Simpson Blog site, you will already be aware of the passion she shares for good food and how it is presented. The site includes many photos of her visits to Japan, including work by these potters, as well as some which illustrate how wonderful food looks when served with thought, imagination - and, of course, on beautiful pottery. Penny tells me that we can expect to see this first-hand as they will be making some traditional Japanese recipes for us to try, alongside traditional table settings and images from cookery books and magazines which show the use of handmade pottery for food in Japan. With having these four potters, plus work by Takeshi Yasuda, alongside more than fifty other potters from the U.K and beyond, this is surely a show that no true pot-a-holic could possibly stand to miss.
