Pottery Exhibition to Feature 120 Ken Matsuzaki Pots That Narrowly Escaped Japan Earthquake
'Ken Matsuzaki - An upcoming exhibition that features pottery that narrowly escaped the devastating March earthquakes in Japan. Fortunately, Ken and his family were not harmed physically in the earthquakes, but his kilns and five kiln loads of greenware were destroyed. By a twist of fate, Ken had shipped out 120 pots for an exhibition at Goldmark Gallery in England just before the earthquake hit. These pots will be on display at Goldmark from June 4-26. If you are in England, anywhere near Uppingham, don’t miss this exhibition!'
