My Japan Weaving Tour – Day 15 Part 1

Day 15. A Day in Arita to see Imari porcelains. This museum has a lot of the history of making Imari ware and very old pieces.

The white area is the clay for porcelain.

Another photo inside the mine.

A shrine to honor the Korean potters who started making porcelain in the town of Arita.

At the shrine commemorating the Korean potters who founded Imari ware as in every shrine there is a cord attached to a bell above. People come and make a wish and shake the cord to wake up the gods to grant their wishes.

I’m making my wish at the shrine for the Korean founding potters.
