An Olympia, Washington church is looking for a communion set consisting
of several items (plates, goblets, etc). I do not have the specifics as
to the exact items or what kind of price they have in mind. They would
like to hire a local artist. If interested reply to me off-list and I
will forward to the right person.

When I saw your message I immediately thought of Reid Ozaki, a Tacoma potter
and part-time instructor at Tacoma Community College. I don't know him,
although I have spoken with him briefly a couple of times--at Ian Currie's
workshop in Tacoma and at the Bellevue Art Museum Art Show (I presume you're
from this area and familiar with this prestigious show.) Pleasant man,
outstanding potter. The work he had at the Bellevue show was high-fired
stoneware (probably actually porcelain), beautifully made, and glazed with
the finest temmokus, shinos and celadons I've ever seen. His pieces left a
lasting impression with me, one of strength and serenity and grace. Which,
of course, is why I thought of him in connection with the communion set.
I did a quick search on the Web for photos of his work but didn't find
anything that might be of use to you. However, the number of sites where
he's mentioned is fairly impressive.
'Hope this is of help to you.
