More Canadian Shelfies

I am not surprised to find another Buddha figure amongst my friends shelfies.  Most of us have visited Japan and been influenced by their pottery and Zen. Would be nice to visit Japan again and see more of their lovely pottery.

Shelfies from Canada

My potting friends in Canada have so many pots in their collection that it would keep my blog supplied for years.  Here are just two showing some of the beautiful Japanese pots, guinomi and tea bowls that they have collected over their lifetime.

Books and Pots - Shelfies

I love looking at peoples book shelves - this one is mine with books on architecture, pottery, Japan as well as my collection of CD's. mostly classical with a lot of piano music.  The pots are mostly English earthenware in a collection of a friend of a friend in the UK.

Shelfies - Photographs from Friends

Here are two more shelfie photographs sent to me by friends.  The top photograph is from a friend who travels to Japan frequently.  The chest, Buddha, lamp etc. all indicate that he has a wonderful collection.  The pot collection is of both old and more recently made pieces.
