December 28th snow is covering the landscape and the garden, pots got a natural snow glaze. Hope it will stay for a while. The studio is cold at the moment, no work with clay. The first days of the new year are a time to relax, to think about the past year and to make plans for the near future.

15. February


I met Mariko and Yuchiko at a workshop in USA a few years ago. Now we met again at Mashiko. They took me arround and we spent a nice time together. We visited Shirobe Kobayashi, who works near Mashiko. Mariko and Yuchiko with Shirobe in front of his smallest anagama kiln. Shirobe Kobayashi is making powerful works.


14. February


My son Valentin also visited Japan at the same time. We came to Hamada's museum to see his workshop. Even he died long ago we still can feel the strong energy at this place where Hamada worked for many years.



Exhibition at 21-21 in Tokyo. Ernst Gamperl, Lucy Rie and Jennifer Lee in a show made by Tadao Ando and Issey Miyake. The modern show room was built byTadao Ando, also the set up of the exhibition. It was a nice experience to meet my friend Ernst here at Tokyo and to be a guest at the opening with all those special people.

June15th

We are beginnig to prepare the studio and house for our anual home exhibition next weekend. (June 21st and 22nd)

I just came back from Berlin where I had to bring some works to Brusberg Gallery. It was interesting to see my works in this  context between paintings and sculptors of modern art of the 20th century.


June 5th

Since weeks I am working with clay. Throwing a lot of pieces on the wheel and making some very large works. The first week of august we are planing to fire the kiln.


March 6th

Just back from the exhibition at Ceramic Art London. There I was presenting afew of the new tea bowls and tea caddies. It was great to show my work at London, where I met wonderful people.


The new catalogue about the best tea works from 2007 just got published. I hope to make some new good work this year. Tea bowls are easy to make but very difficult to get a real good one. It just needs many years of doing it step by step.



January 3rd


This new tea bowl with blue glass drips belongs into a privat collection. I wonder if I can get one like this piece again some day.
