Pottery

January 28th, 2007 at 02:14 am

One of the things that I really enjoy about Japan is the arts. In the area where I live, there is a lot of pottery made. Often times the pottery makers will set up tented booths at shrines and sell their wares. It's always a joy to walk through and see all the items they have for sale and they are almost always reasonably priced if there is something that catches my eye

    I love the sale tables of Uwajimaya in Seattle for the same reason - they often look exactly like your picture. Is it true that its bad luck to buy four?

    That looks beautiful! And regarding baselle's question, "four" is considered an unlucky number in Chinese because it sounds very similar to the word "death." Not sure if this is true for Japanese as well.
