Well, I got the word on the Yakishime
(high fired unglazed stoneware)exhibit
that will take place in Okayama next
Pieces have to be submitted to the
judges on November 6th or 7th-
that means anyone sending a piece
from overseas will have to arrange with
the shipping company to deliver on one
of those days between 10a.m.-4p.m.
The limits on weight and size are as
follows: weight-100 kilos
width- 1 meter
diameter- 1 meter
height- 1.5 meters
I have arranged for some applications to be sent
to me- if anyone would like one(I'd be happy to help
you fill it out-just don't forget the sushi dinner
if you come out smiling)e-mail me your address.
Judges include curators from the Nagoya Boston Museum,
Fukushima Prefectural Museum, as well as one Living
National Treasure(Yu Fujiwara- who I personally dislike-
he was awarded such a title more out of connections
than talent), and two professors from well-known art
Anyway, let me know.
