DSC02854In 2014 I was lucky enough to take part in a tour of Japan led by Linda De Toma, (founder of Claydreamers studio,  who is a ceramic artist with a passion for Japan and Japanese ceramics) and  Naoko Coghlan (a potter who grew up in Japan but now has her home in Melbourne).

We experienced Japan through visiting pottery studios and museums, traditional tea ceremonies, viewing hill climbing kilns, pottery festivals as well as many temples, magnificent gardens, including a moss garden and bamboo grove, and much feasting on good food, and much more.

The following are just a few of the many images from my experiences of this tour.
