Using Stones

Stone has been a wonderful building material throughout human history.  This lovely curved bridge at Katsura Imperial Palace in Kyoto leads to a beautiful Tea House.  At Uji, near Kyoto, is a famous pottery which, sadly, was closed when we visited but I could not resist photographing their stone fence.  The fence to their pottery workshop was made with old kiln props and shelves and was a real work of art.
