Who am I?

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.

About Gas

Hi, I am a wood-fire potter, living and working in the Japanese tradition in Tring, Hertfordshire (UK). Following mediaeval potter's wisdom, I design and build simple wood-fired kilns called 'anagama' for long period of firing and 'raku-gama' for quick (glazed tea bowl) firing. My anagama firing usually takes 9 - 10 days.

    Hello Gas,

    As always, your website is looking fantastic. I take much inspiration from it and from our long chats about pottery, tea ceremony and ikebana.
    I hope we can meet up again soon, I have missed our interesting conversations.
    All the best,
    Brigitte
