I'm extremely excited about our lineup this year, which I think surpasses the quality of our works from previous years.

Building on the humble success of our shows in both 2008 and 2009, we've first decided to enlarge the size of our stand for Collect 2010.

Simultaneously, we've expanded our range of artists, featuring new work by modern-day masters such as ceramists Akihiro Maeta and Yukio Yoshita, and including a new generation of younger artists such as Rikie Shojiguchi in glass, Gaku Shakunaga in ceramics, and the metalwork of Ryota Nishikata.

More information will soon follow in the coming weeks, in particular a long-awaited renewal of Yufuku's English website (which had been put on temporary hiatus for various reasons). Thank you to all who have kindly and most patiently waited for more information from us in English -- we will not let your hopes down.

pps.
The Einin Saga which I had the great pleasure of writing will be put on indefinite hold, as my free time to write has been cut short somewhat by the arrival of my first child last March. Thank you very much for your kind understanding as my wife and I endeavour upon the mystical journey of parenthood!
