Preparing for an exhibition in Tokyo

Midori Takaki
17 May -  3 June 2016

Kyobashi, 2-10-10, Chuo-ku Tokyo 

Silver Shell Gallery

It has been very hectic since CAL. We both got tonsillitis, and then there was the worst part of the construction to bear. We were stressed out. However the show must go on. 

Here are some images of making work for the exhibition. 

Bisque firing

Finally Mike cut a damged kiln shelf to two. 

Whilst waiting for the larger pieces to dry, I made these ones. Animals in Japan. They are not real animals, but those that live in our minds and daily life. You see them in shop windows and shrines in Japan

It was difficult to schedule firings as I was unable to fire for sevearal days due to the building work. It was a frustrating peiod.  

Glaze firing

Animals in Japan, Manekineko, Oinari-san and Monkey will be in Tokyo.

  1. it will all be better once you are on that plane!

    1. I hope so! We are not fans of air travel!

  2. I hope you get time to relax & enjoy some of the time in Japan.

    1. Thank you, Angie. Once the exhibition starts, I have some time to take off. I will share pics from Japan!
