URGENT APPEAL: Xiem Clay Center requests support for Potters in Mashiko, Japan.

Mashiko, a famous pottery town in Tochigi Prefecture, Japan was badly damaged during the recent earthquake. Mashiko pottery studios are generally individual or family owned and for many, losing kilns and production facilities is a major setback. Xiem studio members and friends have donated special ceramic works to be sold at our upcoming Xiem Ceramic Art Fair and Studio Sale to raise funds for the Mashiko Potters Fund. 100% of funds raised will be dedicated to helping the potters of Mashiko rebuild and re-establish their kilns and workshops. Thank you in advance for your support!
