Tokoname Master Craftsman

Peter Machek posted a very nice throwing demo of Tokoname Master Craftsman Hokujo (Genji Shimizu) throwing a teapot.

A photo gallery containing pictures from around his workshop.

And also take a look at the Tokoname Gallery which features his work as well as many other craftsmen.

And if you want even more of an insight into the creation of his work, check out this gallery. A very interesting thing is that some of his work is fired with seaweed to give the subtle and natural decoration.
