Handmade For Japan Offers Ceramic Pieces to Benefit Tsunami Victims

Donate to Victims of the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan With This Online Auction

Like many of us, Japanese-American ceramic artist Ayumi Horie felt overwhelmed and deeply saddened by the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan last week, causing 10,000+ deaths and nearly unspeakable destruction of homes, cities, and coastlines.

In response, she started Handmade For Japan, an eBay auction of handmade ceramic pieces that will raise money for Japan's relief efforts. All proceeds for the auction will be donated, and the sale runs from March 24 through March 27. The sale is listed through eBay under the seller ID "Handmade for Japan."

You can visit Handmade For Japan's Facebook page, which is available in English and Japanese, to preview items for sale. Horie writes, "The situation in Japan is still very unstable and we’re working as hard as we can to gather good work and reach our $25,000 goal."

Many artists, including Diana Fayt, whose piece is seen here, have already donated beautiful ceramic pieces for the auction. If you’d like to donate some of your work, please leave a message on the Facebook page or send an email to And don't forget to bid on Friday!
