This post is way overdue, but I thought it would be nice to share photos from a children’s workshop I lead with my good friend and fellow ceramicist Mei Kwin Wong we had a wonderful day decorating a full sized moonjar made in advance by acclaimed contemporary potter Akiko Hirai. The children were inspired by Korean fairy tales and the sky at night and space, hence the jar was named ‘The Jar of Stories.’

As an update on my last making project here are some photos of the Bullrush Planters ordered mid-January for a gift.  I was very pleased to be able to make and finish them before moving out of my 401 1/2 studio.  In fact, I opened the glaze kiln on the 31st January, the moving day itself!  Needless to say I am very happy with the results and that the planters are going to a very good home.
