A short posting to refer you all to the Exhibits/ Events page above where you can find more details about the upcoming workshop & exhibition I will be showing in & teaching along with friends Jeff Shapiro, Rob Fornell and young Japanese potter Inayoshi Osamu, on March 31st & April 1st at the Tacoma Community College. This event is a sort of continuation of the Elusive Tea Bowl event organised by Jeff that was held last March 12~14th at the Lacoste Gallery, MFA Boston & the Harvard Ceramics Studio on the other side of the country.
Following this event I will be driving down to Portland, OR. to install an exhibition of my work at the Portland Japanese Garden, perhaps the finest multi-faceted Japanese landscape garden anywhere outside Japan. This exhibition, “Meditative Moments”, will feature appx. 40 pieces of my tea ware and be accompanied by an unusual selection of thirteen 2 dimensional works by the renowned painter and close friend, Hiroshi Senju, one of Japan’s most highly acclaimed contemporary artists. This will be the debut of Senju’s exquisite, ephemeral works in the Pacific N.W. and it is my pleasure to make it possible. For more information please go to the link in the Exhibits/Events tab above to see the write up on the Garden’s website.
