The memories that you stir in me!
Back in 1966, when I was studying O Level Pottery at school, the Pottery Master suggested that the 4 best potters in his opinion were
1. Shoji Hamada
2. Bernard Leach
3= Hans Koper and Lucie Rie
Mmn, my mind drifts back
He actually brought a vase by Hamada, a Cider Jar by Leach and 2 small white bowls by Lucie Rie in for us to marvel at.
For Koper he did not own any, but referred us to Coventry Cathedral to marvel at the candlesticks.
I have to confess that vase by Hamada seemd the most magical to me.
