Mark,

It is all fired green. Everything here is yakishime (unglazed) so no need to bisque at all.

Mart,

The Japanese answer to that question would be "Muzukashi desu" which translates to "It's difficult". I will eventually get back to you ......... but it has to be a long involved answer and I need time to spend to write it. As a starter for you, get a decent book on Japanese culture and business so you will really understand my eventual answer.

best,

Great to see your work, I'm really jealous, making my way to Japan has always been a wish. You look like you are putting in long productive hours. That sort of immersion is often quite gratifying and the change of pace should help to prepare you for another year of your "other life".

Best,

Preston

Thanks for all the photos and updates.

I'm particularly fascinated to see the interaction food with pottery!

Please let me know as far in advance as possible if you will teaching/doing any seminars stateside.

No problem Biglou.

I'm back in the states for a week now...... and still trying to get over the jetlag. Almost gone. Had to do a demo at a program 3 days after I got back. Back to teaching 5 days after I got back.
