Friends,

While studying in Japan I met a ceramic artist whose work I admire greatly. Kusakabe Masakazu invited me to his home and spent the day showing me his workshop, his traditional Japanese house and his wonderful pots. I felt privileged to be able to see his ceramics "living," to be able to hold them and discuss them with him.

After exploring his work together for some time, he said, "These are all very nice, but I'd like you to see my 'Treasure Room.'" He took me to a room in the house we had not yet visited and unlocked the door. This room contained the ceramic pieces he felt were his very best work. These were the works he had always held onto because they were exceptional to him. These were his "treasures."

I was awestruck.

Ever since that day, I have kept my creations that mean the most to me. The most expressive pieces. The most beautiful pieces. My own "treasures."

This page gives me an exceptional opportunity to present these pieces to you. Each of these works is specially marked with gold leaf, dated and comes with a hand-made wooden box.

I am pleased to invite you to enjoy the works most special to me, my "Treasures."

Please feel free to contact me for more information.

Russel
