These pots were made by Fukudenji Daiei Sensei at his Musashi-gama in Himeji Japan. The white markings were made by soaking fishing net in white slip and placing over the piece before firing. The second photograph was taken at an Ikenobo Ikebana exhibition in Kyoto showing how this pot was used by a Master of Ikebana. We never heard what happened but Fukudenji Sensei was, at the time (1982), building a kiln in Versailles, France, which was also to be called Musashi-gama.
The Heron Migrates is the story of how a Japanese anagama kiln came to New Zealand. From Estelle and Bruce Martin's diaries from their trips to Japan and the building and firing of the Kamaka anagama. Soft cover with 400 photographs and drawings. 160 pages.
