Back on Track

Posted on 15 June 2010

My posts have been slow in coming due to a combination of the vagaries of the Internet in China together with an unexpected workload. I have been taking private evening classes 6 nights a week learning the art of Fen Cai, the old technique of water based enamels. Using the very tip of a brush to draw the outline (Gou Xian) is an exacting skill and trying to master this is like watching grass grow. I have the utmost admiration for those practitioners who still work in this field.

Drawing the outlines for FenCai

Together with this on my visit to the Pottery Workshop, Takeshi Yasuda invited me to present a lecture on my approach to my work. This led to some frenzied preparation but that has now been done.
