Visiting Scholar Lecture with Chen Aiming
Monday, June 10, 2019
Join us for a presentation by Chen Aiming, the Director of the Longquan Porcelain Culture Research Center, who is visiting our program from China. The city of Longquan in the coastal Chinese province of Zhejian is known for its celadon pottery and the traditional firing technology that imparts its distinctive glaze. Compounded from violet-golden clay and a mixture of burnt feldspar, limestone, quartz and plant ash, the glaze is prepared from recipes that have often been handed down for generations by teachers or within families.
This lecture is free and open to the public. Please RSVP using the link below.
