Weeks 3 and 4 in Shigaraki, trip to Kyoto, Okayama, Inbe, and Naroshima.

In weeks three and four I continued to work with the idea of the roof tile as a base.  In my first version I have embellished the roof tile quite a lot, but later have decided to keep the roof tile as a simple tube with those lovely emblems on the ends……as a contrast to the more complex arrangements on top…keeping with the imagery around me. Surreal trip away to busy Kyoto, serene Zen gardens, mad train stations, the Bizen pottery town of Inbe, and the dreamy island of Naroshima, art architecture and all.  Then back to work.
