This decorated plate is one of Estelle's early pieces and has been given to me on long term loan for my collection. The small lidded jar I found in an antique shop in Raglan (Waikato, New Zealand) last week. The markings underneath have confirmed that the pot is from Tamba and was made at the Tanbun Pottery in Tachikui, Japan. Looking at their web site I think it may have been made by Hisao Onishi as his work looks very similar but I may be wrong.
The Heron Migrates is the story of how a Japanese anagama kiln came to New Zealand. From Estelle and Bruce Martin's diaries from their trips to Japan and the building and firing of the Kamaka anagama. Soft cover with 400 photographs and drawings. 160 pages.
