Monday's here, and Kochi feels warmer by the day. I've got a time table filled with final exams to write and grade all week so, unfortunately, studio time will take a hit. The vase above was named by Yuka Tabe (the ceramics instructor at Susaki High School). She is my fellow adventurer in the ways of muddy creations. When this little fellow came out of the kiln last spring she excitedly exclaimed, "KAWAII!" (cute! in Japanese). When asked why she said, "It's like little creature. I think, very very cute" So it came to be called Little Creature.
We'll see you on Thursday with the opening of the kiln, and who can say what else.
