I spent the month of September, 2012 in Jingdezhen, China in a residency at The Pottery Workshop. During this time, I worked with local porcelain fired to cone 13 in area public kilns. I also bought slip cast green plates and explored painting on them with colorants designed to be used at this temperature.

All stoplights and streetlights are made of porcelain – usually blue and white decorated. My studio space at The Pottery Workshop. Each lunch and dinner were prepared locally and eaten communally with other residents and staff at The Pottery Workshop. The view from my workspace. A poster in Chinese advertising my lecture to area potters and students. The street where The Pottery Workshop is located in Jingdezhen. The red and yellow sign says “The Pottery Workshop” in Chinese and English.
