the way it is

a year ago


It's been one year since that terrifying day that changed everything. We were in Shigaraki and a fair distance away from the earthquake, tsunami and meltdowns but it affected us deeply. We sat glued to the tv, our panic-struck minds trying to catch up with the unfolding events. I was in the middle of a kiln firing on that day. I left all of my work behind, some in storage and some in a disposal bin. I have been unable to find many words since then.

Our hearts are with you, Tohoku and Japan.
