More recently Yasunda has been working with celadon-glazed porcelain. He has taught in universities across the UK and is currently the Director of Pottery in Jingdezhen China. His work is held in a number of public collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Craft Council Collection. MIMA (the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) holds several examples of his Sancai series. Estimate £300-600 The pillow dish is in good condition, the shallow stand is heavily crazed and has a star crack to the base internally (does not go right through). Cheffins
