This is very sad news.
One of the most talented potters of our time and yet always so humble and charming ....
Resting in Potters Heaven.

A memorial sevice will be held for Len at the
Titirangi War Memorial Hall, South Titirangi Road,
on Friday 14th October at 4pm.
I doubt that this will be a big enough venue personally.
Though I don't know if I will be there as my sister passed away last night.......
