|cups and dishes|
I ventured off to the Tsuboya Pottery Festival and Kokusai Street (note: nowhere near the BX madness!)
It was really neat to see the different pottery styles from the various artisans.

I also learned that Okinawan pottery is EXPENSIVE! Wow! I did some major bargain shopping. If there was an outlet version of this festival, that's where I was! With unlimited funds I could have done some serious damage because they really did have some beautiful things. But, on my budget I just couldn't justify spending $50 on a sake cup. ONE. SAKE. CUP!
Why do I not have artistic talent that brings in the bacon?
|This is precious. Someone is getting one for Christmas! Piece of clay with holes going through, put water in the dish, then place a flower cutting in the hole. So simple and so wonderful.|
|I couldn't resist this picture. So sweet. I watched them walking through the pottery festival. He was careful to make sure the umbrella covered her head, and she kept her hand on his arm the entire time.|
