In December we had the pleasure of interviewing Clover Lee, she works on Japanese style pottery and manga. At that time she had this to say about Japanese culture and crafts:
I grew up in southern china, in a small region that happened to be in the same TV coverage area of Hong Kong, so I could watch TV channels from Hong Kong. During the 1980s and 1990s the majority of the animated shows from Hong Kong featured anime from Japan. Therefore, I grew up under the influence of Japanese culture since I was a young girl and it became natural that I should be interested in Japanese crafts.

This month we were able to catch her at work at the Hyper Japan exhibition in London, and of course we took many photos!
