Hi May.
I went to see if you had any of Matsusaki Ken, but i could'nt find your =
photo's from the link.
What am I doing wrong?- I'd love to see them.

Glad you had a good time.

My students and I listened to Live8 while we were waiting for the kilns =
to heat up at a Raku day,
It was a good firing. I tried horsehair firing for the first time, - =
cool ! - if smelly.

I also put a copper slip on a pot and then put a copper glaze on top and =
reduced it.- Totally chavtastic and well bling.=20
If one likes that sort of thing - ;-]=20

(My 13rd old son decided today that a rural chav is a chaff, which I =
thought was quite funny and the word is in my head). =20

Did you go to Ceramicart London ? if so what did you think ?

Best, Pat Southwood

Hiya Pat;

There are total of 6 pages of photos. At the bottom of the page is where
you can navigate to the other pages. I have a few of Matsusaki Ken. I
went to his demo. He's very good. He worked his kick wheel with a bare
foot. His chawans are like sculptures and he treats them as such. It's a
pity I didn't buy his DVD. I have to watch my budget. The link again for
the photos.

I was away when the Ceramic art London was on. I was told it was a top
notch show - if you have to rate it with the other
pottery/ceramics/craft selling shows.

What did Matsuzaki throw his tea bowls on?
