Shunichi Yabe is the 'Guest Artist' in residence at SCCP at the moment.
He is one of a family of Bizen artists and is now regarded as one of Japan's leading contemporary ceramicists.
Of course seeing Yabe San on a daily basis I notice how down to earth he is and entering his space each day he always greets me with a smile and we tend to communicate through gestures and gifts of food.
His work is very intricate (attention to detail) and yet very simple - it has presence.
Watch the brilliant little video below filmed at SCCP:
