4 years later – Hagi yaki

I was full of good intentions to resurrect this blog on the return visit to Japan. The blogging didn’t happen but the Japan trip did, in November for 3 fabulous weeks with two potter friends who were also with me the first time. Non Potting Partner declined to come with us, a wise decision on…
