Hoshi Masayuki Tokyo Exhibition

One of the first Bizen potters I became acquainted with is Hoshi Masayuki(1949-), one of Mori Togaku's first apprentices(1979). Hoshi wasn't born into a potting family and studied philosophy at Joshi University in Tokyo, his birthplace. His work is in the always refined and light realm and is very popular for the table. His first exhibition of the year will be at Gallery Sei in Minami-Aoyama 5-18-11(3rd Fl.), Tokyo from Feb.24-Mar.11.(Ph.03-5766-1799) The theme is more Mashiko than Bizen---pitchers---a form not usually equated with Bizen. If you happen to be in Tokyo do stop by and say hi for me from an old friend.
