I spent thins afternoon talking (well actually mostly listening) to Takeshi Yasuda. It was a real privilege to be welcomed into his work area just to hang out and talk to him. I have loads of notes about porcelain history, and other pottery traditions of the world from our nice conversation. He is a very brilliant man who is filled with historical knowledge about pottery and the world. I cannot express the amount I learned from just asking him a few questions. He is an excellent teacher and artist.
