Peter Swanson Mashiko Appeal Yunomi

As many of you will know, the recent earthquake in Japan caused devastation in the potter town of Mashiko. Many kilns and buildings were destroyed, the Hamada Museum suffered damage and many important pots were lost.

To help with the Leach Pottery's Mashiko Earthquake Appeal, Cornish potter Peter Swanson has produced 25 celadon yunomis inscribed with the word Mashiko. In addition to Peter's stamp, each yunomi is marked 2011 and n of 25 on the base. They are priced at 40 each plus postage and all proceeds go directly to the appeal.

If you would like to purchase, please contact Peter via swansonpots@mac.com. I suggest you move quickly, they will be very popular!
