For the last 18 years, we have teamed to offer a study and travel

opportunity to study with some of China’s most prominent teachers and
ceramic artists.

Imperial Blue & White Porcelain Capital of
Jingdezhen, Qin’s Terra Cotta Army, Ancient Capital of Xi’an, Great Wall
of China, the Forbidden City in Beijing, the hustle and bustle of
Shanghai. Join us for an experience of a lifetime!

China’s roots
in ceramic art history are strong and deep. For thousands of years,
Chinese artisans have developed and mastered techniques and artistry
that has set the standard of excellence in ceramics throughout the
world.  High fired porcelains, underglaze and overglaze techniques,
celadons, copper reds, temmoku, yao ware carving, ash glazes and
tri-colored lead glazes are just a few of the contributions made by
Chinese artisans over the centuries.
