The Kiln is firing with the witness cones as suggested and we’ll see today if there is anything wrong with the kiln itself.
In searching for a Tea Ceremony Master this morning for a client I came across the Consolate General of Japan in Atlanta. Here I find that there are a group of tea ceremony enthusiasts that meet in Atlanta and I will contact them about services. Very exciting!
Also I have come across a beautiful blog called Shizen to Bizen today. Shizen, meaning Nature and Bizen, which is Japan’s oldest pottery making technique. Please check out their page. It is definitely inspiring.
Also the Bizen Gallery. Such AMAZING work here!
There is also an exhibit of Japanese pottery at Piedmont College running until the 31st of January. More information here – http://www.piedmont.edu/events/view/19
