Statement

Seto International Ceramic •Glass Art Exchange Program 2006-2007 is by all means an enriching project, allowing me to learn more from the wonderful Japanese culture that has always something new to show.
I am grateful with all the ceramists who kindly allowed me to learn from their workshops, I offer them my friendship and would like to invite them to visit my country.
It is mandatory for Seto, a city with a profound history in ceramics, to promote its art worldwide so that it is even more recognized. The ceramics world is in debt with Seto, it is thankful to this program that I have the opportunity to show the world about Japanese ceramics, specifically from this city, and continue the cultural bonds with Japan.
I want to thank the support from the staff of Seto City Cultural Center, the Seto Ceramics and Glass Art Center(Shinseikikougeikan) staff and students, as well as my invaluable helpers, without them I couldnft have accomplished this project.
