Study in China with U of WV 2014

Dear Colleagues, Students, and Ceramic Enthusiasts,

Come to China and Study Ceramics with West Virginia University at the World Famous Jingdezhen Pottery Workshop!!!


Through a unique linkage, West Virginia University has teamed to offer a comprehensive study opportunity for students and the serious advanced or professional ceramic artist/potter.  Join us for a once in a lifetime experience and join us in the Imperial Porcelain Capital of Jingdezhen.  For the last 18 years, we have teamed to offer a study and travel program in the Peoples Republic of China. Participants will have the opportunity to study with some of China’s most prominent teachers and ceramic artists.

Imperial Blue & White Porcelain Capital of Jingdezhen, Qin's Terra Cotta Army, Ancient Capital of Xi’an, Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City in Beijing, the hustle and bustle of Shanghai. Join us for an experience of a lifetime!

China’s roots in ceramic art history are strong and deep. For thousands of years, Chinese artisans have developed and mastered techniques and artistry that has set the standard of excellence in ceramics throughout the world.  High fired porcelains, underglaze and overglaze techniques, celadons, copper reds, temmoku, yao ware carving, ash glazes and tri-colored lead glazes are just a few of the contributions made by Chinese artisans over the centuries.
