Enjoying life

I was honored with an invitation to be a presenter at the Aomori International Woodfire Festival
held this past August 2002, in Goshogawara Japan. It was a valuable cultural exchange and a time of great sharing with potters from around world. This page has photos made during my participaton in this event. I Invite you to check back occasionally as things get edited, and appended, as I go through the wealth of
imagery I was able to create
in my first visit to Japan.
Please be patient and allow some time for the images to load.
I hope you will enjoy the journey.
I did.
