22 June 2011 - Auction for Mashiko
The Japanese earthquake and tsunami of March 11th brought with it
immense destruction and abject misery for thousands of Japanese
people. The potters of Mashiko were badly affected with the
majority of noborigama kilns being destroyed, and workshops and
Potters in this country wanted to do something to help their
Eastern colleagues at this time. The Leach Pottery Appeal was set
up to try and provide some timely relief to help Mashiko potters
rebuild their kilns and their lives.
On 22nd June, as part of our Arts and Crafts sale, we will auction
a group of pots donated by some of the very best British potters
including Gordon Baldwin, Bernard Leach, Jim Malone, Mike Dodd,
Phil Rogers, Clive Bowen and Lisa Hammond. The entire proceeds of
the sale of these items will go to the Leach Pottery Appeal.
The full catalogue for this sale is now online.
