... shaped magnet. And every time we unloaded our bag of bakery goodies we always found a little something extra as a treat!
Later we met up with Miyuri who introduced us to a very famous potter who demonstrated making porcelain in his workshop. From one piece of clay he made a cup, a bowl, a small plate and a large vase.
