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.

Ceramic Art London 2009
A few days at London for the CAL where I showed my best works.
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.
Jun Isezaki, his son Koichiro and the apprentices after work in the wonderful studio.
First I visited Jun Isezaki to bring him one of the tea bowls he made at my studio last year. Here he is looking at the shape and the texture of firing.
A short trip to Japan. I visit Jun Isezaki, a show in Tokio and meet friends in Mashiko.
Jun Isezaki is throwing some tea bowls at my studio. Jeff Shapiro is watching the trimming of tea bowls.
September 7th the three men show at Gallery Heller in Heidelberg will start. Jun Isezaki, Jeff Shapiro and I will show works fired in the Anagama Kiln. I am very excited about the chance to show our works together.
My kiln just got fired and some very nice pieces came out.
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.
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.
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.
