What's New

Hello again to Virginia
Dec 25, 2003

In the heavy snow storm, I finally arrived at Farmville Virginia. I visited here in October because I gave workshop at the Longwood University at that time. The reason I came here again is my next ceramic program will be started in January 2003 under John Jessiman who's built the Cub Creek Foundation at Appomattox, VA, and I am supposed to be a residency artist at his studio. This time I brought a lot of stuffs and set up new program here. While I was in VA, I stayed at Randy and Cricket Edmonson's house and joined Christmas Party.
Meet with Jeff Shapiro
Dec 24, 2002

Eventually I did visit Jeff Shapiro at his studio in Accord NY on the Christmas Eve. He studied Ceramics in Japan and spent time for 10 years. To my surprise, he speaks very good Japanese. We had good conversation and talked about cultural differences between US and Japan. When he will have next firing in the Spring 2003, I hope to join it.
