Beauty of Old Pottery ① – Mediæval Vessels 中世古陶 –

I have been filing Japanese pottery images on my PC in my spare time. Since my silly old computer packed up and trapped a few thousand images in it, I had to go back to my reference books. Some books are rather heavy to lift and go through pages. I had to start scanning all over again to a new files. Snowy December and rainy January have been a good time for getting on with favourite Mediæval vessels and for forgetting miserable weather outside.
Do not worry about losing them again. I have learnt an expensive lesson and most important images are on the external hard-drive disk now.

Here I am showing some images out of several hundreds I have.

I may show some images of hidden Japanese pottery treasures I worked for their database, from the Fitzwilliam Museum (Cambridge) in the near future.


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.
