In Japan pots have to have a use, a function that allows the user a reason as to why they buy a particular pot. Craftsmanship is high on the agenda when choosing such objects and so to have virtually sold out of the 23 pots entered into the exhibition in the Takashimaya dept store has
proved a huge boost to my confidence and bank balance in these very uncertain times.
I’m sure my Dad would have been proud!
( I know for sure he regretted not buying that Mazda )
To be honest my pots have always been aimed to the end user market
more than the Gallery/collector market and that’s probably why they have sold so well in a department store setting.
