While a huge amount of attention amongst the US and world ceramics community has been placed upon the situation after the earthquake in Mashiko, far less attention has ben given to less famous (outside of Japan) ceramic centers. The town of Kasama is right next door to Mashiko, and in fact the founder of the pottery tradition in Mashiko in 1853 (OTSUKA Keizaburo) came from the already established Kasama. They too suffered in a very similar way to Mashiko.

Here is an effort underway that is trying to raise attention and funding for the potters in the town of Kasama: http://www.indiegogo.com/Place-of-Hope

Mark,

I'm reposting this after the server crash scrambled some messages........

The time-limited nature of that particular link expired when you tried to acess it. The group will be doing some more ongoing efforts. When I hear of the way to contribute... I'll post that here.

best,
