Goshogawara International Woodfire Festival

The spiral of the festival's emblem represents both pottery clay and Aomori. The obi (broad sash) on the right and left recalls the fire which spouts out of a kiln.

Since 2002, the Tsugaru Kanayama Pottery in Northern Japan has sponsored an annual ceramic Artist-in-Residence program during the month of July. Twelve ceramic artists and potters from around the world are selected to participate.

The program is focused on the exchange of techniques and ideas about ceramic art and wood fire. By working together and freely sharing information, the sponsors seek to encourage mutual understanding and cooperation among potters throughout the world.
