I can attest to the excellence of Takeshi Yasuda's work. One of his bowls
appears in Garth Clark's, "The Potter's Art." I worked along side Takeshi
this spring while in residence at the University of Ulster in Belfast
where he is an Assoc. Prof. when not in his studio in Bath, England. He is
very thoughtful about his work and is a kind and generous person. The
workshop would be money well spent.
