New china

Our friend John Parker has been on a residency in the Fuping Ceramic Art Village in China along with other ceramic artists from Australasia. Unlike most residencies, however, this one culminated in the opening of a museum built to display the work made in Fuping. As part of the deal John worked with the local brick and tile factory to create a new series of work that is now on display. You can follow John’s account of working in China and the opening of the museum on his blog.
