AC138: Chris Prindl Pottery
Chris Prindl started making pots in 1987 with Toshiko Takaezu while at Princeton University. At the same time he also started studying Japanese which came flooding back from four years in Tokyo as a child, and within a few months he knew that he wanted to go to Japan to become a potter. After graduating he went to Japan and found an apprenticeship with Takao Okazaki in Yamagata. He lived and worked with the Okazakis for 2 years and was introduced to many Japanese ceramic techiques and styles. It was here that he honed the skills to express his Japanese sensitivity with clay. It was also in Yamagata where he first came across firing with wood which has remained a passion ever since.

Trebyan Forge in Cornwall, has been Chris's workshop since early 2000, over the last decade his work has expanded in many directions. At the same time as making increasingly monumental bowls and jars, I have been working on the finest possible pieces in porcelain - power and delicacy. He has spent many hours and firings testing and researching a plethera of glazes, which has allowed him to develop an unusually wide palette for his pots. And for the past seven years he has been collaborating with Paul Jackson, firing the wood-fired salt-glazed kiln they built together.
