Folk Craft Museum

I absolutely loved this place, it's a sort of anthropological collection of hand work.  It had some of the most beautiful kimono's I have ever seen.  And the ceramic collection was amazing.  Bernard Leach had very strong connections with the collector here and the Japanese influence can continue to be seen world wide today.  I couldn't take photo's but I am going to go back when Soetsu 's house is open next wednesday with my paints to see more and collect images.
