Fuping, China Residency 2007

In April, 2007, I traveled to Fuping (Xi an), China, for a month's residency. I am one of about 30 ceramic artists invited to represent the US in the new America Ceramic Art Museum, part of the FuLe International Ceramic Art Museums. This complex of museums is the dream of Dr. Ichi Hsu and is part of the Fuping Pottery Village and factories.

It was a unique and productive experience. The American Museum will open on July 4, 2007. I created 9 pieces for the museum. Here are some pictures of my experience and the work I created.
