 This year I’m a little late with Autumn kamataki. I will light the anagama on the 7th of November and unload the kiln the 26th. As always I will fire the kiln for ten days. The kiln needs to cool nine days before opening.

I’m happy to introduce my cheerful assistant Midori Igarashi, Chiba, Japan .

I was removing poison ivy from around a flower bed. I had two friends stop by one afternoon and they commented how nice it would be to have a stonewall behind my Buddha garden.

…I agree, and built this wall during the hottest days of the year, loving every moment of it. Stones have such a spirited presence.
