I published two books on Amazon kindle store.

This book is one of my biography and is explaining “how to get successful with pottery”.
I want “poor people with the aim of becoming an anagama potter and an artist” to read this book.

Voice of Fire, Voice of Earth
Encounters with Fire, Encounters with People

Although I had built an anagama, the Iga- and Shigaraki-style pots I had made were still very different from the pieces I had pictured in my mind for many years. I have failed, and failed again. This time the firing must succeed. With focus and…

Sunil san, I had 4 or 5 firing a year before 2004. But I suffered from gangrene the end of 2004. Fortunately, my close friend who is a German take care of me. He is a doctor of homeopathy. So I recovered from gangrene without cutting my feet. Since that time, I’ve a firing a year. So I can get the best works, only few works from the firing. Thank you Sunil san!

  1. My view:Those are in Ceramic Artists Group activities in Linkedin..my request also please go through all of actvities one by one and spend some time,”understand the application”….I am sure you will also be inspired and willing to do some innovative things…Great !

  2. Hi Shiso and Hi Sunil.I am ceramics graduate looking for scholarships and grants for masterstudies in abroad mostly in Japan.or USA. I am greatful to be a part of this conversation as it is so nurshing to me and all ceramics lover..!
    I have not seen you work Shiso but but humbleness depicts your work. I will try to get your book but some part says that every poor potter who want to learn or practise anagama.practise must read this….but i think the richness is in the deep understanding and appreciating or deep practising in any form of art like a pure ritual and devotion which is also kind of combining sacrafication..
    i know i cannot afford my education and practise but i am sure to proceed my ceramic pratice in few years or in months may be in a day but i am conserving myself and my thoughts to be able to produce pot till my last breathe.
    any one refering my statements may guide me if required
    many Thanks
