China Visit

October 14 - 25

I had two pieces accepted into the 1st Session of World Teapot Art Exhibition. We were invited to this event as well as to visit the Imperial Kilns in JDZ. It will be a ten day tour. Everything is planned to visit artists’ studios, galleries and museums, all pertaining to ceramics. It is difficult to know what to expect but we are eager to see China for the first time.

Almost as soon as we return, we will pack up our art supplies and bags to visit Chateau Orquevaux in France.
