The other day a heavy rain hit West Japan.
Okayama prefecture, the production area of Bizen pottery,
also suffered major damage.
In order to protect the work, potter puts the work in a paulownia box (Kiribako).
According to what I heard,
Two workshop of kiribako were damaged by the flood this time.
One was destroyed completely and they decided to go out of business….
The other seems to be able to resume business.
Their skill is precious.
Disasters cause sad results.
