A Happy New Year of the Tiger 2010!!
I have been thinking of writing my blog in Japanese and English for a long time. I didn’t want lose my abilities of Japanese writing and my Japanese is much better than my English anyway. I am rather busy coping with many (personal) matters I have been haunted for some time. I will be in a deep hibernation as I always need to time to sort out. I should be coming back with full of energy in March. See you soon!

一年の計は元旦にあり。そして、正月は冥土の旅の一里塚。
何やかやで英国生活も24年目にもなり、書くことと言えば英語がほとんどの毎日。『今年から和文と英文の折衷で穴窯ブログを書いていきたい』と思い立ったのは良いのだけれど、欲の深いこと限りなく、あれもそしてこれも書きたいと、結局何も書けないまま時が過ぎてしまいました。次にブログの更新をするまでには、愚かな欲を抑え、考えを纏めて戻って来ようと思います。只いまは色々と私的な事情で取り込んでおりますため、このブログは、勝手ながら弥生三月までお休みを頂き、冬眠させて頂きます。
尚、このブログでは和文と英文とは内容が重複することもありますが、大体一致しないことを申しておきます。ですからバイリンガルとは呼べとないと思います。平行線のように付かず離れずの『パラリンガル』と自分勝手に呼んでいます。)

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.

    Dear Gas. I hope you got what you needed from your hibernation and are happy back in the world. I just wanted to write and say hello and thank you as an inspiration to me to grow from my electric kiln beginnings to moving outdoors and working with flame.! Kind regards. paul.
