Mashiko Apprenticeship
Mashiko-based potter Okuma Toshiaki is looking for an apprentice to
start this August. Says
"My name is Toshi Okuma, I live in Mashiko and own a small ceramic
production studio called
Yumito. I would like a foreign professional potter working outside of
Japan to come to my
studio and create their pottery works and then have an exhibition at a
fine gallery in Mashiko.
I will pay for the round fair air tickets, and supply a great working
studio space and living
apartment. I have good size working space, three large gas kilns, one
med. electric kiln, eight
electric wheels, four pug mills, slab roller, two extruders, plus many
extras. I have a very
clean apartment furnished, with kitchen, bath/w shower and toliet, on my
property to stay here
and work in comfort."

Any interested parties please contact Okuma-san directly at
