Shigaraki in Safed

On our last night in Japan our host,Jun,gave us a small container of Shigaraki clay,enough for two small bowls,heading for the next anagama firing.It was gritty,groggy and stoney,quite unlike the refined clays we get here,and a challenge to throw.I can see how you would develop a quick,direct style of throwing if you had this clay to work with,which is what we found in Shigaraki. Posted by Picasa
