Before my friend Ju-Ian left for Shanghai she gave me a bag of porcelain. I am using it now and making some fun pots out of it. In the past, using porcelain meant changing the type of forms I made. Porcelain just seemed to demand more formal shapes and refined forms than stoneware clays --until now. I am experiencing a freedom with porcelain that I never have before. My forms are lighter, thinner, and looser than my porcelain has ever been. Wish me luck.
