Vancouver's Thomas Kakinuma and BC Pottery

John, the very knowledgeable proprietor of
DODA on Richards, has opened my eyes to Thomas Kakinuma, probably one of the greatest Canadian potters - and he was from BC. Kakinuma did some beautiful ceramic animals (birds in particular) that I know I'm going to keep my eyes open for.
