For Nuts & Bolts day of National Clay Week: Community, we’ve partnered with the Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China, the city of “white gold.” The Pottery Workshop Jingdezhen is an international ceramics center focusing on the development and enrichment of ceramics
in China and abroad. They host an international artist residency located in the center of hundreds of industrial and independent craftspeople and artists, all working in clay.
Our partners are conducting interviews with visiting international artists and local Chinese artists to see how both sides have been impacted by the residency program, and to discuss how a multi-lingual, multi-cultural studio partnership in the heart of China’s porcelain production works. Until then, here’s a video introduction to Jingdezhen and the Pottery Workshop.
