MASHIKO EARTHQUAKE APPEAL

The trustees and staff of the Leach Pottery would like to express our great sadness at the recent catastrophe that has beset Japan. The Leach Pottery’s historic and current links to Japan are of great importance to us and the friendship we have received from the Japanese people over the years has been unwavering.

In 2008 the people of Mashiko pottery village and the Mingei Association collectively donated over £40,000 towards rebuilding the Leach Pottery.
We are launching an appeal now to raise funds for Mashiko which has been badly hit by the earthquake. Mashiko has over 400 studios and kilns, providing the main livelihood of the village, and the recent quake has caused considerable damage to kilns, homes and buildings. Mashiko’s two main museums, the Mashiko Ceramics Museum and the Hamada Reference Museum have also been badly hit. To donate to this appeal visit the Leach Pottery website
Link to the Leach Pottery, St.Ives website for appeal information and how to donate. http://www.leachpottery.com/What-s-On/News-Feed.aspx

Here are some images sent via Euan Craig from Mashiko and from his own pottery. for more information see his blog
