Choko by Takeichi Kawai
This small Sake cup was given to us by Takeichi Kawai when we met him in Japan in 1978. Takeichi is Kanjiro Kawai's nephew and trained with him. We met Takeichi in Matsui where he and several of his students were having an exhibition. He could speak good English and knew several New Zealand potters including Len Castle, Mirek Smisek and Peter Knuckey.
