In today’s post I wanted to highlight an upcoming exhibition that
features pottery that narrowly escaped the devastating March earthquakes
in Japan.
In addition to getting the word out about this exhibition, I wanted
to send an update about the potteries of Japan. In this excerpt from the
June/July/August issue of
Ceramics Monthly, Naomi Tsukamoto explains how the potters of Mashiko are slowly rebuilding their lives.
