Jason Truesdell : Pursuing My Passions

A life in flux. Soon to be immigrant to Japan. Recently migrated this blog from another platform after many years of neglect (about March 6, 2017). Sorry for the styling and functionality potholes; I am working on cleaning things up and making it usable again.

re: Ceramics buying trip in Mashiko, and meeting the potters

Your site is most interesting. I am following the URL you provided on CLAYART. How wonderful that you are able to persue your dreams and leave your job. Not many are in a position to do what you have done.

I really like your website, especially the ability to enlarge the pictures.

I have bookmarked the site and will return to follow your progress and success.

re: Ceramics buying trip in Mashiko, and meeting the potters

There are over 500 pottery kilns in Mashiko, by my estimate. For this reason, among others, for people with an interest in Japanese ceramics, Mashiko offers something for everyone (for better or worse).

Visitors to this place with some ability to communicate in Japanese will have a more gratifying experience if they can arrange personal contacts with potters whose work they find interesting.
