Hello again! My name is Gas Kimishima. (Gas is a nickname) I am a potter, living and working in the Japanese tradition in England. Following mediæval potter’s wisdom, I design and build simple wood-fired kilns called anagama (cave oven). That’s why I have a website called ‘Anagama‘. Old graphic skills from my designer period in Tokyo helped me with my very first website. I still make mistakes in English but I will try my best.
I will be writing about wood-fired pottery and some Japanese cultural topics like tea ceremony, ikebana and calligraphy . What I am hoping is to find a few friends with the same interest some time.
