Believe it or not, a
work of tobe pottery is now at the United Nation Office in
Geneva, Switzerland, placed in the hall leading to the UN
Security Council meeting room. The work called "The Blue
Planet of Life " is donated to the United Nation from
Yasuhiko Shirakata, a potter of Tobe Pottery and Tobe Town.
As you can see with this picture, it is the globe-shaped
pottery and shows no national boundaries. Mr. Shirakara
wanted to express the importance of the world peace to the
V.I.P.s from many countires who come to the meeting room to
talk about the reduction of armaments by not showing the
borders on the earth.
