There is something so personal, honest, and magnetic in Margaret's work, it's as if they radiate a kind of warmth. You just want to pick these pieces up, hold them and use them. They speak to me in a very direct, yet curious way that I haven't quite figured out yet. Her work is imbued with sublime simplicity, humility and beauty. I look forward to collecting (and using) many more pieces. Thank you for putting so much into your art, Margaret.

Thank you for visiting Takaki House Art Galley. The items I have placed in my online store represent the variety and level of refinement I have made in creating one-of-a-kind art pieces and Japanese pottery.

Art Pieces - I understand that offering ceramic art on the internet involves a great deal of trust on the part of the buyer. I value your trust and will make every effort to gain your satisfaction.

Japanese Pottery - Each piece that is offered is selected based on its unique characteristics, the look - the feel of the piece in my hands. A piece where the clay, glaze and fire have come together in a beautiful way.

Additional policies and FAQs
Pottery, the Nature of Clay - Pottery will gradually change over time - it is expected and appreciated. The porous nature of shino and the cracks in the glaze - formed naturally in the kiln, allows the piece to age beautifully and take on its own character. The compounds in green tea and coffee will form a patina on the surface and cracks will deepen in color. This is not a flaw - it is the nature of clay.

Food Safety: Pottery pieces should be used for their intended purpose. While lead and cadmium are never used, a representative sampling of any color glaze used at Takaki House have nevertheless been tested for metal leaching. In all cases the inside glaze has shown to be suitable for functional use. While glazes are shown to be suitable for functional wares, acidic foods or liquids should not be used in the items and pottery care recommendations should be followed.

Pictures: I make every effort to display accurate photography, but a picture can never take the place of handling a piece of pottery. Weight, texture, balance are all important considerations when purchasing pottery. Whenever possible a subdued light it used to reduce glare. I provide as much detail as possible about each piece.

Pottery Care: Items should be hand washed with a soft sponge a with as little detergent as possible. Items should be dried naturally. Do not use harsh soaps or place your pottery in a dishwasher. Microwave use is not recommended.

The footring or bottom of the pieces are not glazed and can be rough. This can scratch table tops, please use a serving tray or mat under the pottery.
