Illusion of long garden path in narrow high-rise balcony

ベランダは狭くて短いです。けれども、この角度からは、庭の道がちょっと長く見えます。

From this perspective, the balcony garden path looks longer than its four meters. I’m pleased with how much I have packed in.

Making wall vases at Shiho ceramic studio

史火陶芸教室の生徒展示会のために、壁の花瓶と植木鉢を作っています。この写真は最初の形です。粘土と釉薬は同じだけど、後ろと前を反対にして、斜めと垂直の形を作りました。

In preparation for the November Shiho students’ ceramic show, I am expanding from flowerpots to wall vases. This is what they looked like after I connected the slabs together. Later comes trimming and carving, baking, glazing, and second baking. I am experimenting with reversing front and back, and how to angle the box that holds the water and flowers.
