Phil Rogers' Marston Pottery - Spring 2008
Soetsu Yanagi and Bernard Leach watching Hamada at work
Full marks must go to Phil and Lynn Rogers
for their efforts in staging this wonderful exhibition of
pottery by Hamada Shoji, his apprentice Shimaoka Tatsuzo
and his eldest son Hamada Shinsaku.
Long will I treasure the experience of being able to touch
and feel these very special pots, to see so many pieces
in one place outside Japan was a rare privilege.
An illustrated catalog of the exhibition
is available for download at www.philrogerspottery.co.uk.
