This just came out of the kiln this morning, the very first one of this new design. I was over there as soon as the kiln could be opened, in my pajamas, with my dust mask pulled on over my bed-head!! My inspirations for this piece were antique Chinese stoneware ginger jars, Japanese woodblock prints, and the mineral jade. I love the liveliness of the cherry blossoms, and the antique feel of the glaze. Read more about it over here at my studio.
