I am thrilled to be writing from Tokyo where I have been showcasing a major collection (100 pieces!) of work for Gallery st Ives at the Tokyo Art Fair. The somewhat overwhelmingly large event with almost 50,000 visitors has just finished and I am now recovering! It was wonderful to meet such a variety of people, both art lovers and those new to the arts. It is always a pleasure to visit Japan, a country I have deep connections with both through my Raku work and throughout my family history. From a work perspective its almost like coming home, back to the birth place of Raku ceramics, where art has function and form. A beautiful country with its cherry blossom and wonderful architecture its always an adventure coming here!
