Interesting Dervelopment In Glass.........

Ceramic related....... (alumino-silicate stuff is "ceramic").... but not yet into our exact world. 


Wonder where this will go?







I'll Be Away For A Bit...................

11 October 2015 - 04:58 PM

Hi everyone.  Just a little "heads up" that I'll likely be away from the forum section for a while. 


I'm headed to the People's Republic of China again.  It is a part of my teaching course load for the semester........ with students in tow.   We're headed to an invitational ceramics symposium over there. I'm presenting a lecture, demo-ing, and have work in an exhibition.  We'll start off in Beijing, and then head to Jingdezhen, and Yixing.


We're on a non-stop flight... Boston to Beijing....... 13:45 hours in the plane.  Ugh.  Very glad I'm in business class.


China controls access to certain websites and such, plus I do not know how much Internet access I'll have while there this time nor how much spare time I'll have.  I can't remember if I was able to log into the CAD sites from China the past times I have been there, so I can't say if I'll be around the forums at all or not.  But I won't be around much even if I can get logged in.


The other Mods will be (kindly) taking care of this section while I'm potentially out-of-touch.  See you all again in a while.

Professor John Baymore




This series of slide lectures will explore the cultural

context in which this art form developed and currently

thrives, including the impact of geography, deeply held

Shinto and Buddhist beliefs, the lifestyle of the Samurai

class, and the impact of the Tea Ceremony on the art. We

will look at the production of the Six Ancient Kilns, the

Mingei Movement, the work of the Living National

Treasures, and look at contemporary trends as new artist-potters

throw off the shackles of centuries of tradition.

Finally, we will look at how Japanese ceramics had an

impact on contemporary American artist-potter’s work,

and how Abstract Expressionism impacted the Japanese



(This is a bit similar in content to the full credit-bearing degree level

course bearing the same course title.  Without the heavy readings, papers, and exams!)
