Glad you liked the site, Logan! I was able to visit the Raku Museum
in Kyoto in 2004 when I participated in the Fulbright Memorial Fund
Teacher Program that sent U.S. teachers to Japan. What a wonderful
experience! The people there were very, very accomodating. Knowing
that I and two others were teachers, the staff made sure we had the
opportunity to watch their video presentation on the Raku process as
it is performed in Japan. When I purchased an exhibition poster to
bring back to my classroom, the lady at the front desk went into the
storage room and brought out three more posters (from past
exhibitions) saying "our gift to you." I have all four posters with
beautiful examples of Raku teabowls framed in my high school art
