    Hello, I very much appreciate being notified about this major retrospective. I own four pieces of ceramics of Tommy Kakinuma, purchased in the late sixties. They are: a charming large monkey holding a baby monkey, a chickadee, an owl, and a dog. I have spoken to my children about the collectible value of these pieces. If you would like me to loan any of these pieces to your exhibition, I would be happy to do so. I am proud to show off such unique ceramic work.

      Thank you, Susan. I’ll forward your information to the organizers but they will probably already have confirmed the exhibition’s content. Congratulations though on your pieces. It’s good to see your enjoyment and pride in them.
