POTTERS AND PRINTS PORTFOLIO

?While working on the silk screen prints, I was made aware of the difference between a two dimensional image on paper and the type of drawing which I do for my ceramic pieces. For the print my concern was not only the beast image but also for the surrounding negative space on the picture plane? When I work with clay my image is formed by the outer dimensions of the clay.? ? Akio Takamori

The Potters and Prints exhibition, catalogue and portfolio were produced by the Sun Valley Center for the Art and Humanities and featured 6 artists. These two Takamori prints were first traded to American Ceramics magazine for advertising, and then sold in a benefit to support the magazine to its current owner.
