I'm living in Kusatsu-shi, Shiga-ken for an undetermined amount of time and teaching English as a second language at a local high school. This journal is to document my experiences, thoughts, and to stay connected with others at home and abroad.

Max's 穴䆴(Anagama): back to Shigaraki

Last night I visited a friend, Max Hodgetts, to stick out the night shift of his kiln firing. Max is a former JET from Shiga, always has been into ceramics, and from this September he started doing a residency at the Togei no Mori Shigaraki Ceramic Arts Center.

Shigaraki is really well know for it's wood kilns (anagama & noborigama) and natural glazes that come out of them.
