The ASP collection is a hard working reference collection easily accessible to students and visitors. For instance, at the Auckland Museum, visitors can view a ‘finished' Takashi Yasuda work (behind glass). ASP visitors by contrast are able to closely view and handle a number of incomplete bisque fired Takashi Yasuda works made at about the same time. In the last years of the Fletcher Challenge Award five day workshops were sometimes held, which enabled works to be finished, as in the case of works made in 1998 by Torbjorn Kvasbo from Norway.
The collected works on show at Objectspace are neatly emblematic of an initiative that has always focused on excellence, internationalism and professional development and has contributed a great deal to local community development.
