Chris Prindl started making pots in 1987 with Toshiko Takaezu while at Princeton University. After graduating he went to Japan as an apprentice to Takao Okazaki in Yamagata. It was here he honed the skills to express his Japanese sensitivity with clay and where he first learnt the techniques of firing with wood.


A gallery to enjoy art

With an independent and welcoming feel, THE ART ROOM Topsham is a gallery to enjoy looking at and talking about art.

Our refurbished premises are in a historic building on the quay in Topsham, a sophisticated town alongside the River Exe and boasting a wonderful array of cultural and retail facilities for visitors. 

There are also many tranquil places to sit along the picturesque river frontage.
