Residency in Arita May 2016

After Land of the Most Holy Mary Exhibition exhibition I went to Clay Gulgong, a conference with amazing international ceramicists generously demonstrating and sharing their knowledge and skills. This was followed immediately by my residency in Arita, Saga Prefecture, Kyushu in Japan. Arita is a porcelain town where for many centuries, the porcelain stone was dug and worked in factories and studios across the whole area. It is celebrating the 400 year anniversary of porcelain production. There is so much to write about this residency and Arita, it was a transformative experience, and I learnt much. Here a selection of photographs taken at the Kouraku Gama Factory, and surrounding areas, and some of the work I made there. More info
