Arita 2014 No.9

I had a special day today outside of the studio, because the very talented Kirsten Coelho from South Australia is now visiting in Arita. We went to Tatuya Tutui's studio with Tsuru-san - she is an amazing person to show you around Arita - she knows so much about the town! Tatuya kindly showed  us how to do wheel throwing Arita style and also he let us have a go too. Amakusa clay was very nice clay to work with and we had a lovely chat with him. It was so special!      

Arita 2014 No. 8

I recently went by bike to Jinroku Mountain in the early morning by myself - it so cold and windy! But I was really pleased that I went there and was impressed by how beautiful it was to look down at Arita from the mountains.
