Actually I missed the gathering at the Gardiner Museum where the visiting 5 Korean pottery Masters had fabulous pots on display for sale in the Gardiner Shop. I saw these on Monday, June 6, however when I was able to visit the Gardiner Shop and Museum.
The workshops in which we watched one master demonstrate a particular vessel decorating technique, most of which involved the use of coloured slip(s) and carving. I haven't finished one of the projects yet and have yet to fire any but here are three of the pieces I produced based on the workshops.
One of the most amazing things about the conference was that each one of the 350-odd participants received a too kit that contained two stamps and a full set of metal carving tools all of which were made by the 5 masters!
Finally, on Sunday, the second day of the conference, bought the demonstration Shimpo Aspire throwing wheel from Tuckers.
Now I have a wheel in my studio AND it takes up only a small space on a shelf that already existed and wasn't being well used.
