PACS Potters day last Saturday with Shozo Michikowa was beyond all our expectations! He inspired us all with his freedom with the clay and ceramic form and absolute joy and integrity in his life and work. Shozo’s wife and daughter were with him – his wife very much a hands on helper to him.
Our audience of 40 comprised not only members of PACS Potters, but West Street Potters, Southern Ceramics Group, PACS (Petersfield Arts and Crafts Society) and friends. At the end of the day we put the family on the train to London from a Petersfield, ready to give a sell-out talk and demo at the V&A on Sunday afternoon! It was a privilege to have him for a day, between his course in Westdean and the V&A.
His exhibition at Erskine Hall begins this coming week.
