We are pleased to be able to offer you an opportunity to enhance your pottery skills to a level that would be hard or impossible to find elsewhere. We have a program that takes maximum advantage of the distinctive ceramic history in the famous town of Arita, which is considered to be the home of Japanese pottery. Arita pottery is based on its 400-year history of developing the unique properties and artistic possibilities of porcelain.
Our program encourages familiarity with porcelain while we explore its special properties. We are also well equipped to accommodate conventional clay techniques. Our studio provides potter’s wheels, slip casting, and pressure casting with the opportunity to enhance your work with decals, painting, and over-glazing techniques.
In-depth instruction in Japanese pottery techniques is part of our program with emphasis on exploring the endless possibilities in the uses of glazes when combined with the extraordinary properties of porcelain.
