in Germany (as well as Switzerland where I live) pottery is still learned
in 3 year apprenticeships. After that you may continue with a superior
especialized art school.

Hello Heidy (with a Y?)
I appreciate your email and will send the information
to Daniel's parents. They live in beautiful
Ueberlingen on the Bodensee.
His mother is a bio/chem teacher at THE BEST
highschool in Europe (Salem Institute)....his father a
journalist. When THEY told me this, I had to believe
I am from Holland, from a potters family (Mobach).
There are no such apprenticeships there, unless you
What I am looking for is a summer place for him to be,
learn, work and be more independent, where he can
improve his English as well. He was so happy here last
summer. But because of his deafness his parents want
him to be in a "protective" environment - yet insist
that he live normally in a hearing world. It is VERY
confusing, especially for Daniel.
I will definitely send them the links, although he
still has 2-3 years left in his (non potting) boarding
school. I appreciate what you sent! I have had great
responses, including a formal summer apprentice-ship
in Brooklyn, NY, with a little $ on the side! What an
adventure for an 18 yo boy. My son lives there as
well. Nice connection.

century, is originally from Basel)

I think Heidy is right: there are many more apprenticeship
opportunities in Europe.
My friend Gorden Gran, near Dresden, fires a noborigama (he
built it from looking at photos of Tatsuzo Shimaoka's noborigama.) But
there are many old salt anagama in his neighborhood that are a couple
hundred years old. Some of them are still fired (I met a friend of
his who fires an old anagama that belonged to their ancestors.)
This is Gordon's webpage. He takes on apprentices:
Gordon studied at a government pottery. I think he began
his studies when he was 16. After graduation, he worked at the
pottery until shortly after the Berlin wall fell. After that, all
the government potterys closed, but He was able to buy bricks, supplies
and equipment very cheaply, from his old workplace and set up as an
independent potter. I hope to visit him someday and see some of
the anagama that are older than my home country.
