  1. Hi everyone! I'm very new to this forum so I'm sorry if I make mistakes in putting out my questions, but I hope that someone out there can maybe help answer my questions regarding pottery apprenticeships, particularly in Japan. I am a 23 year old product design graduate. For the past year I've been diving deep into pottery, but because pottery was just a minor class that I took in Uni, I realize that I still have lots to learn in terms of technicalities, studio management, developing a style, etc. I do feel like I have the basics down and I go through the past year learning by myself through creating, experimenting, classes, Youtube videos, and even selling my things bit by bit. It's great and all but I'm really hoping to step up my knowledge and skill, and hopefully maybe move towards being masterful of my craft. Maybe a more immersive experience. With it, I am thinking of a possibility to go to Japan and try to get myself an apprenticeship in Nerikomi Pottery, which is the specialty/niche I'm trying to work towards. I do understand that It is not common, but just if I can make it happen, In apprenticeships such as these, how long would it usually take from start to finish? I know traditionally they could take a very long time, 10 years even, but how about nowadays for a foreigner? Would I be expected to pay for housing and my own food for the length of the apprenticeship? Do we maybe get allowances for living costs in return for my help around the studio, or are living costs completely my own responsibility? What was the process like to get accepted as an apprentice, are we expected to showcase anything beforehand? (portfolios, etc). Do I already have to be super good at the skill (Nerikomi) in order to get accepted? Are there things I should maybe note If I'm interested in making this a reality? Does anyone have an experience of an apprenticeship in Japan? English is not my first language so I'm sorry if there are grammar or language mistakes. I'd appreciate any input from anyone. Thanks so much!

  9. From the album: Kilns designed/constructed by John Baymore

    A single chamber wood fired kiln that was built in Japan at a workshop which I led there in 2006. It is designed to be used for the youhen charcoal finishing process, and you can see the charcoal ports in the wall in the front. It shares a large chimney with a large 5 chamber noborigama (seen behind it). It is fired on a 3 day cycle to 1250 C and then all the ware is buried in wood charcoal for the cooling cycle. This process is heavily used in Bizen. The dubbed this kiln the "Johngama" ( ジョン窯 ) .

  10. From the album: John Baymore's Clay Work

    Yunomi thrown from clay with massive amounts of local NH granite dust and stone mixed in. Almost more stone than clay. Fired many multiple times in my woodfired noborigama to get the rocks to melt sufficiently. Included wooden stoage box. Sold at one of my solo exhibitions at an asian art gallery in the US. Now in the personal collection of the executive director of a US art museum.
