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.

いろいろな点で陶芸家・エドワード・ヒューズは等閑視された宝のような存在の一人で、イギリスでは正当に評価されなかった。そのやきものは自国でより日本の方でよく知られていた。バーナード・リーチと同じく、東洋、特に中国、日本のやきものや思想にものの見事に染まってしまった彼は、思索的で静謐な東洋のやきものと、生気とエネルギーにあふれる英国のスリップ装飾土器を高温で還元焼成して融合させた。
