Talk by Kumiko Jacolin, a maker of ceramics and currently a PhD student in Victoria University of Wellington.

Japanese influence was strong in New Zealand potters in the 60’s. Doreen Blumhardt, Helen Mason, Len Castle, Mirek Smisek and later James Greig all went to Japan. Workshops were held in New Zealand by Shoji Hamada, Takeichi Kawai and Bernard Leach with the support of Japanese society and others.

Pottery is a community thing - New Zealand and Japan were united, enjoying potting, firing, learning together. Let us share the history and indulge in this art & craft culture.
