I am also cleaning from around my well 10 years worth of work that for whatever reason I put there after firing it.

There are a lot of pieces that are great just how they are. I think seeing beauty is one of the most important skills I have to develop. Especially in Japan what is beautiful isn’t always apparent. Since doing most of this work I have spent a lot of time studying antiques. That studying has really opened my horizons on what is interesting and worth keeping. The pictures show about 1/15th. of what I have to go through.
