Pot Of The Month - July 2009
Stuart, The gallery's ceramic curator has chosen Yo Thom's Large Tsubo as July's pot of the month.
"Yo Thom’s work is often to be seen in the gallery and she is most commonly associated with domestic ware.
However, we have had one or two of Yo’s larger pieces and they have a presence and a volume which commands our attention. We know that larger pots are most often bought by clients who have ‘just the right place for it’ and in truth these vessels demand space and status.
The coming together of Japanese and British elements in Yo’s work is an attractive and significant element. The colours are subtle and understated – the pot sits well in any context whilst still retaining its independent spirit – speak of the pot, speak of the potter!"
