I'll be at Tokyo National University of the Arts (Geidai) this coming fall with a group of our NHIA students.
Have you made the decision yet?
If so....... I'll see you there.
Yes, I've made my decision and unfortunately I won't be going. While the offer had much prestige associated with it, there was no funding/salary involved. Tokyo is an expensive place to live, and given the economy there/market conditions to sell work into, I feel that the hardship placed on my family would be just too great/unfair. (Visions of the movie Hazan filling my head) Also I have the feeling that the position is geared towards academia, folks on sabatical, rather than artists/potters.
Perhaps in my next life......
