You would need to contact your local Japanese Gardens and ask them if they hold any ceramics showcases. Many of the larger ones do - for tea ceremony, for ikebana, for paper crafts. The dates will vary.

saw an amazing show yesterday at nihonbashi Mitsukoshi 6th floor. work of bizen potter Harada Shuroku .. hehe. i took off my watch and actually was able to handle about 8-10 matcha chawan. harada sensei`s chawan are very well balanced. the kuchizukuri was very smooth. looked like some cooling reduction/wood fired pieces. amazing !

above is the koudai view of my soda chawan

aloha

Wowwwww!
I'm drooling.
Many of your creations touch me deeply.
Is there a link or some other info you could provide that would inform
me about which of your works are available and how to purchase?
Again, wow.
Keep up the inspiring work!
