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.
