Where do you find all this great work?

Chris C.,

If you love this stuff you have to go to the source,

Korea.

The ceramic works there are amazing. The artists show glimpses of their heart within every piece...

Gingko,

One especially enjoys how the white blotches seem to blow across the body of this piece like the falling cherry blossoms of spring or perhaps the wet snow of winter. Either way, this piece exudes peaceful movement mimicking the water within its belly.

What a beautiful effect created in a gas kiln.

Peace

I haven't the words in english to say that ... but I have the same feeling of cherry blossoms and trees.

Ginkgo,

The same thing happens to me with French!

One just realized how much these blotches look like the picture of cherry blossoms below it.

Peace
