I had my fourth pottery class today and this time we went to the teacher's house as she has a pottery room set up there with two kilns! I met Susan at Ebisu station and it was a short journey on the train to Oimachi where our teacher, Eriko, met us. It was really nice to see a different part of Tokyo and also to see a typical Japanese house. She even has the tatami mats in her dining room and her family sits cross legged round the table to eat dinner. I made a nabe pot today, which I was quite proud of, even if it is a tad wobbly round the edges! I'm hoping it will survive the firing and then we can make our own nabe (casserole-type dish that you boil on the hob) at home.
