I was recently informed of the death of the talented Mino potter, Kato Yasukage XIV who died in a car accident on August 13th. Kato was the 14th generation of his family to make pottery, stretching all the way back to the Momoyama period. Whether the works were bold or subtle, his insightful touch brought his pottery to life and added a resonant contribution to the Shino and Oribe traditions. He will be missed by many.
