Pots in Kyoto
These two pots were made by Sadamitsu Sugimoto who resides in Shigaraki and fires an anagama kiln. On our visits to Japan Estelle and I have tried to meet him several times, having been given his name before we left on our first trip in 1978, but have never succeeded. There is a little pottery shop in Kyoto that has his work and I was able to visit and photograph these pieces. I do not know the name of the shop, only how to find it. They remembered me from a previous visit and kindly gave me two catalogues of Sadimitsu-san's exhibitions that had been held in Tokyo. Such kind people.
