I am fortunate to include Tsujimura Shiro and Claude Champy among my good friends. Claude, Shiro, and I have had 3 exhibitions together so far: Gallery Kokon,NYC, atCapazza Gallery, Nancay France,  and Kakiden Gallery, Tokyo Japan. This image is from a visit to Tsujimura san’s home and studio in 2013 in front of one of his small hill climbing kilns.
