japanese ceramics. You're experience far surpasses my 3 years in clay
and I completely encourage you to post your pictures not only here,
but on the sca-potters list that you are also on. Please share your
knowledge! Sometimes I feel like I am the only potter in the SCA even
remotely interested in asian ceramics enough to specialize in it.
I'm absolutely going to pick up that book and hopefully once I add to
my research paper, I hope you would be able to look over my findings
and let me know if I've missed anything? You can let me know
privately if you like.
But please, share your pictures from Japan...and add your work to the
site as well. It's always a pleasure to see other people's work
ESPECIALLY since you've researched everything so throughly! :)
