thanks kathleen, for introducing me to the work of ceramicist toshiko takaezu. toshiko was a guest teacher when kathleen did a summer art program at skidmore in ’97. toshiko was born in hawaii in 1922, and has been working in clay for over 50 years. i really love the acorn shape, which seems to be her signature. beautiful photos kathleen!
