I would like to announce *the Mashiko Exhibition of 15 Mashiko potters in
the Tiendschuur Ceramics Museum in Tegelen in the Netherlands from December
10, 2011 - March 11, 2012.* The Tiendschuur shows the finest ceramics in
the world and supports its creators.
The world-famous pottery village, Mashiko, about 90km northeast from Tokyo
was heavily hit by the earthquake on March 11, 2011 and the potters=3DE2=3D=
houses, kilns, workshops and their works were severely damaged. Mashiko has
a 10,000 year old pottery tradition, in this highly regarded pottery
village in Japan.
Through the hard work of quite some people it was made possible. But money
is still very much needed. Please, find it in your heart to donate to this
fund to save the village of Mashiko. I know it is not an easy time for
everybody and it is present giving time. Please, see what you can do and
look at the information for donations.
