Deadline for China Trip Extended until February 21st

The deadline for my trip to China has been extended until February 21st AND $500 scholarships are available thanks to the Doña Ana Community College Student Government sponsorship.

ART 294 – Pottery in China is designed to introduce students to the history and culture of China with an emphasis on porcelain trade and manufacturing.  Students will travel the ancient porcelain trade route from Guangzhou to Jingdezhen to Shanghai. In Jingdezhen, students will learn about the materials and techniques unique to porcelain production from local master craftspeople. They will apply what is learned by creating their own porcelain artworks. Visits to historic sites such as Guangzhou, Meiling Pass, Ancient Kiln Museum (Jingdezhen), Yaoli and Gaoling villages (Jiangxi Province), and Shanghai will introduce students to the origins of porcelain production and its influence as a world commodity.

Empty Bowls 2017

This Vinca Bowl, made of porcelain and colored slip, was created during the summer of 2017 as part of my artist residency at the Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China.  I am donating this platter to the Empty Bowls silent action (information below).  If you live in Las Cruces, NM , then consider attending the benefit on October 20th from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. to provide for the hungry.

Arrived in Beijing

On May 27th, I arrived in Beijing, China, managed to navigate the subway, and find my Air BnB located near the lovely Ritan Park pictured below.  I’ll be in China until July 1st and will be spending most of my time in Jingdezhen, the porcelain capital of the world.  It is my hope to post on this blog regularly during my stay in China.
