Potters of Japan Documentary

I’m always interested in the older pottery videos of times gone by. My wife and I enjoyed watching The Potters of Japan the other night. Put together by Richard E. Peeler who was a pioneer in documenting these treasures. It features some the great pottery styles and regions of Japan like Bizen, Tamba, Haki & Mashiko that we saw during the visit to the Mason-Scharfenstein Museum at Piedmont College. The soundtrack is just classic!

Christmas Gifts

My wife got me this gift literally a year ago. It was so nice that I was waiting on getting a permanent awesome frame for it and it never made it onto the wall for financial reasons and just other things taking precidence. Its called a Gyotaku which is basically where ink is applied to the object directly and then applied to the medium that receives the ink.

This one is from Fishing for Gyotaku
