"Porcelain painter, Yūki Hayama, b. 1961, creates scenarios of futuristic dystopian society by integrating decorative elements and characters from ancient Chinese myths with those from contemporary Japanese manga. His pieces feature intricately hand-painted imagery rooted in ancient Chinese legends as well as compelling fantasies of sci fi, both of which sometimes involve beings of superhuman scale and overwhelming power that threaten the world with ultimate annihilation."

nceca Claystories deadline tomorrow: Just a quick reminder that the ClayStories event, which will be held on the evening of Thursday March 17th, during the 50th Annual NCECA conference, is still accepting applications for story tellers. If you are interested in having 5 minutes on stage to tell a story related to clay, we are interested in possibly having you be one of our speakers!
In addition to the glory of telling your story in front of a room full of your pottery peers, speakers get a cool handmade ClayStories mug!
Submissions will be accepted until January 21st. #nceca2016 #socialclay #nceca50th

nceca It's a big holiday today, but clay knows no boundaries. We all come together in ceramics! Thus a beautiful ceramic shard wreath by Israeli born artist @zemerpeledart, blue and white originating from early Chinese (Tang and Song dynasties) artists using Persian cobalt. Blue and white then evolved through Islamic tin glazed ware into European variations. #happyholidays #ceramicshistory #ceramicartcommunity #socialclay #ncecafever 2mon
