Photo Journal: Crafting canines

Ceramics maker Atsushi Okamoto examines dog-shaped incense-holders fresh from the kiln in Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture, on Oct. 26, 2017. Next year will be the year of the dog, hence the canine theme. Okamoto says the design for the New Year's decoration was also partly inspired by photo collections of puppies as well as memories of a dog he once owned. The craftsman is planning to make 300 of the porcelain pups. (Mainichi)
