Japan

I spent two and a half weeks in Japan in the Autumn of 2011 with over 200 international university staff and students for the International Ceramic Art Symposium, organised by the International Society for Ceramic Art Education and Exchange (ISCAEE). It was a fascinating experience. Here are a few photos from some of the events and activities during the visit…
