About The Pottery Workshop:

“The Pottery Workshop Jingdezhen is an international ceramics center focusing on the development and enrichment of ceramics in China and abroad. […] The Pottery Workshop is surrounded by hundreds of small, independent craftsmen and artists. Clay producers, throwers, sculptors, mold makers, blue & white decorators, glaze shops, public kilns, brush makers, blacksmiths, and box makers are only a sampling of the craftsmen working in our community. Our modern facilities, bilingual staff as well as being located in the “Porcelain Capital” offers a unique experience found nowhere else in the world.”

This week, Aimee will be giving a presentation on the unique silt casting process used to make the ceramic wind-bells at Arcosanti to the artisans and craftsmen in Jingdezhen,
