Thank You!

I want to thank those individuals who purchased my yunomi this past Friday (May 15th) in conjunction with AKAR Gallery's "2015 Yunomi Invitational" opening. All of my pieces
were selected within the first hour. This is a phenomenal exhibition and I am always delighted to be part of it. Again, "Thank you"!
