Went upriver about an hour yesterday to visit the village of Iwami Tsuga in Misato Town to see the opening exhibition of Kujira Ceramics Studio.
Hakudo Hashimoto, a Kyushu native, moved to the area last year after spending a couple of years in the Dominican republic setting up ceramic workshops there. He built a huge kiln and the current show is the first work that came out of it.
The exhibition is in his house and studio and runs until the 20th May. It is located just off Route 375 running along the Gonokawa River about 30 minutes downstream from Miyoshi, Hiroshima.
