In many ways, the potter Edward Hughes is one of Britain's unsung treasures -

his pots were better known in Japan than in his own country. Inspired like Bernard Leach before him by the pots and philosophy of the East, in particular Japan and China

he brought together the contemplative, quiet qualities of Oriental work with the vigour and energy of slip-decorated earthenware in pots that were fired in a reduction kiln to high temperature.
