Ken Matsuzaki Exhibition

This weekend we are catering for the preview of Ken Matsuzaki's new exhibition of ceramics at the  Goldmark Art Gallery in Uppingham. Matsuzaki is considered one of the foremost ceramicists of his generation.

See http://www.modernpots.com/ken_matsuzaki.php for some fascinating video footage of the vast kiln, fired just twice a year, due to the incredible effort required over a sustained 7 day period.

This exhibition is particularly poignant as Matsuzaki's hometown of Mashiko, a centre of cultural significance and home to hundreds of artists was devastated by the earthquake. Pieces on show were shipped out of Japan just shortly before the March 11th earthquake.  See www.goldmarkart.com for more information.
