I arrived to Taiwan on Friday for my 2 month residency in Zhunan Snake kiln ceramic center. I will learn to fire with wood their way. On first day I visited Yingge museum in New Taipei City. We visited a friend of the kiln, who makes ceramics and who has shown us hundreds of his tea pots and served us tea. We visited another ceramic artist high in the jungle: Yu-Ying Huang, who presented me with a beautiful white celadon tea caddy and served us Oriental Beauty tea.
Since then I have been working, testing clays and just observing this overwhelming ceramics world around me. It makes me feel like I am so small, just a small drop in the ocean of ceramics.
