Sponsor Spotlight: The Clay Studio

CS1

I was never very good at pottery and yet, I still took classes in high school and courses in it in college. I still remember my pottery professor exclaiming over and over to me, "put your weight into it!" I was too delicate with the clay. I decided I was over it after college, but seeing The Clay Studio makes me feel like giving it a try again. You can find my picks (above) here and here.

I thought I had seen a video on The Clay Studio on PBS a while back, so I looked for it and here it is. You can find my picks here and here.

Nice vintage finds in the Netherlands

Arabia

Oh boy am I enjoying my visit here in the Netherlands... one of my habits when being here is visiting all the second hand shops looking for vintage ceramics and else... my harvest so far: a beautiful breakfast set including coffee cups, plates and bowls by Ulla Procopé for ARABIA Finland, the Anemone Rosmarin pattern...

... this lovely wall tile from 1967 by Edmond de Bellefroid for Mosa Maastricht and cute little candle holders from Bavaria Germany. Below a set of these beautiful red vases, yes they are from West Germany. and on the right a vintage handmade measurement. 

I still find it amazing what people just give away... but I don't mind I am more than happy to give them a new home in Malaysia.

A studio tour in China with Dutch ceramic artist Carola Zee

Studio1119

I hope you remember this Let's Get Personal Tour with Dutch ceramic artist Carola Zee. Carola makes all her ceramic products in her studio in China... yes that's right all the way in China! In the city of Jingdezhen Carola has found a great place in a former school building inside "The Sculpture Factory".

Studio111

Carola told me that in Jingdezhen the main industry is in porcelain and ceramics. which gives her the ultimate possibility to work together with many skilled craftsmen to create new products and work on special projects.

I love these pics, makes me want to work with clay too. It must be such an amazing adventure to work as a Dutch person all the way to the other side of the world, learning not only true craftmanship but also the customs and traditions of a different culture.
