Modern Tamba Sake Cup
This is a modern Tamba Sake cup from our 1978 visit to Japan. We were taken to Tachikui (the area of Tamba pottery) by Professor David Hale who was then teaching in Kyoto but, I understand, now lives in France. I have lost touch with him but would love to renew our friendship. He wrote several articles for Pottery Quarterly Magazine and a book on pottery in the Tohoku area of Japan. Through P.Q. we were able to make contact with him and his wife Anne when we were in Kyoto.
