…SOMETIMES I RUN OUT OF IDEAS ON WHAT TO DO WITH THE KIDS. WE WERE HESITATING TO GO ON A WEEKEND TRIP, A DAY TRIP OUT OF TOWN, VISIT SOME MUSEUM…. BUT I LIKED THE IDEA OF LEARNING SOMETHING NEW, ALL TOGETHER.
I GOOGLED AND FOUND THIS LOVELY?WORKSHOP –UZUMAKOTOUGEI– RUN BY TEIMOUR WHO USED TO LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY SO THE CLASSES ARE IN JAPANESE AND ENGLISH!…

…What a lovely way to try something new, use your hands, and make gifts for your people. It’s a fun date idea too. So step away from the computer and get behind the wheel…

Wonderful news. I have received my parcel from Japan. I am so happy. Thank you sooooo sooooo much
I love the pieces and all the equipment too. The glazes look wonderful and I’m really pleased with how they have turned out, there’s a certain ‘je ne sais crois’ about them.
I look forward to meeting again early next year. I will be in touch once I have booked my flights to hopefully book in some more classes.

I would like to thank you again for your extremely instructive and enthusiastic lesson, and also your faith in letting me make my own mistakes. I greatly appreciate that.
I had an interesting day yesterday walking 10 kilometers to and from kanagawa institute of technology’s workshop in heavy rain, and was thinking about the lessons I had gone through with you -I believe I will definitely try to pursue ceramics at least as a hobby for now, all thanks to your encouragement and positive reinforcement. Haha..
Thank you again, and I look forward to a successful firing and the eventual delivery of what has been the fruit of 6 hours of understanding and practice of ceramics!
P.s. I have only just looked at your fantastic work on your website, and immediately regretted not doing so before, for at least I could have asked you how you achieved such magnificent glazes. Haha.. Perhaps when I return to Japan sometime in the mid term future..
P.s.s. I also just realized that you had received an associates degree from the musashino art university, of which I mentioned that I visited its new library the last time we met. Do check out the library if you feel inclined hehe.. I absolutely love the idea of the huge bookshelf winding around forming walls and spaces.

My husband and I are coming to Tokyo on holiday from Nov 2 to Nov9 for our 12 year wedding anniversary. We always dream of learning Japanese pottery (we came to Japan more than 15 times already). We would like to take private lessons for the 2 of us to learn and do some pottery. We can come 2 or 3 hours every day between Nov 2 and Nov9.
Is it possible?
