May 2nd Gallery Night at Whitefish Pottery and Stillwater Gallery

Three Styles from Japan

Whitefish Pottery and Stillwater Gallery are excited to present a unique show to kick off 2019’s First Thursday Gallery Nights, “Three Styles from Japan” an exhibition of work by three established Japanese Potters; Fuminori Deguchi, Kazutoshi Yamaguchi , and Kazuyo Taguchi.

This is Mr. Deguchi’s 3rd time visiting Whitefish.  Mr. Deguchi and Tom originally met through Mako Sakaguchi with the State of Montana/Japan Trade Office in 2002.  In 2003, Tom was fortunate enough to visit and work in Mr. Deguchi’s studio in Kumamoto, Japan, his hometown.  Then in 2004, Mr. Deguchi was able to visit and work in the Whitefish Pottery Studios to fire the Anagama Kiln.

All three potter’s have been hard at work making pottery and firing the Anagama Wood Kiln, “Agnes” at the Whitefish Pottery Studios.  Firing the anagama kiln brings a community of potters together from across the state of Montana and on this occasion from across the Pacific Ocean.

Please join us in celebrating Three Styles from Japan
