International Studio

This is the main entrance into the studio.

Here is an inside view of the throwing stations for the students. There are two wheels in each station.

These are two pottery wheels built for the master throwers of the studio. The wheels are designed after ancient Chinese wheels that were built in the ground.

Here is an image of what Mike and I have been up to in the studio, recycling clay. We were able to reclaim 6 large pots of clay. This included scooping out the clay to dry completely then crushing it into powder form, to then wet down and use later.
Here is two of the large tian bao jars that are used to slake down the clay.

That is a great studio. Take lots more pics maybe we can replicate one here.

This is a cool studio - great to "see" everything - so keep up the pictures and letting us know what you are up to. Most of the food looks good as well, but I am not sure how much of it I would enjoy eating right now. I will talk to you both later - take care and be careful! Glad to see that you are doing well and enjoying China thus far.

The studio looks really neat. I love seeing all of the different pictures of your trip. The food doesn't look that good to me, but of course I don't like to many different foods. Stay safe and have fun.-RED
