We had a nice chat and I was able to drool over a lot of lovely pots and ceramic sculpture from various Japanese artists... even a few very old pieces of Bizen ware dating back to 550 AD! Robert told me to send his regards to Hank, and Mel as well. Very nice guy doing great things for potters here.

Hey Ken; Your impressions of Robert Yellin's influence and persona match mine as well; and that was before his excellent gallery in Kyoto, which I am eager to visit in the Fall. I look forward to your further posts concerning the trip.

Cheers, Hank in Eugene
