Meet Toshiko Takaezu: a potter who (like all potters) was not afraid to play with fire. In our oral history interview with her, she reflects on why she became a potter:

…the impact that I got from women potters, the strength that you could feel, the strength that is in the pot, made me feel that I really like this…and to have such an impression that I got from the pottery that the women made and the force that they had with the piece, and they didn’t make to have it in the galleries and the museum, they make because they can use it.

- Oral history interview with Toshiko Takaezu, 2003 June 16

A major influence, so much respect for this tiny woman.

"Cups" This set of four cups is sharing one idea, in addition, the potter who made these cups, Andrew Coombs is a student of philosophy, and is interested in naming what he see’s. He was influenced by Rene Magritte “ Ceci n’est pas une pipe”. By writing “cups” on his he is giving them instructions and identification. These cups were made from clay dug at Andrews family farm.
