Pots at the John Leach Gallery
John's pots often had a lovely toasted finish on the outside from the wood firing and only glazed on the inside. I would have liked to have spent a longer time just looking. The news from Japan is extremely saddening. Some pictures from Mashiko, and the opportunity to assist, can be found on www.leachpottery.com. I had always thought I may be able to take shelter in my anagama in case of an earthquake, but seeing a picture of Ken Matsuzaki's kiln puts me off that idea. Please contribute if you can.
