Kawai Kanjiro

Posted on May 10, 2013 in Japan, vacances, visit

Last month, we visited the home/workshop of famous Japanese master potter Kawai Kanjiro in Kyoto, near the temple of Kiyomizu-dera. We discovered a “secret” museum; it looks like it’s been untouched since the owner died. The cast-iron kettle is still suspended, the traditional brushes and drawings are on the desk.
