Very sad to hear of the passing of my dear friend and fellow ceramist Ryoji Koie. An inspiration to me when we met while I was working at the INAX craft studio in his home town of Tokoname, his passion and flare for ceramics in all its forms was infectious. ‘Gary’ he said looking at my meticulous approach to pot making – ‘if it takes longer than a minute to make a pot – that’s too long!’ RIP dear master. Cherish your gifts to me always.
Ryoji Koie, one of the most playful and provocative potters in Japan, has died at the age of 82.
