A Japanese Passion: The Pottery of Edward Hughes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Edward Hughes 1953 – 2006

A monograph on the work of potter, Edward Hughes, long overdue, which includes essay, exhibition texts, transcript of an interview – in all 116 pages, lavishly illustrated by Stephanie Boydell, Shizuko Hughes and Alex McErlain.

Edward Hughes has for too long been overlooked, since his tragic death in 2006 and I, for one, am delighted to see this monograph published to give an insight into his life and work. For me, his pots are superb, the glaze, attention to detail – all shout out the quality and excellence of his work. A preview of this work is available as a pdf for those who would like to explore further, before purchasing.  Preview
