I had heard about Kishimoto-sensei (front row, left) and his pottery for a while. I actually own a very beautiful plate made by him that was given to me by the parents (back row, center) of a former student. They are fans of Mr. Kishimoto and I had been looking forward to meeting him and his wife. On Saturday I finally had the opportunity to visit his place in Ichihara City. They were in Mexico for a while teaching and managing a pottery school.
