Foreign Friday

Chinese artisan
Taipei, Taiwan
December 1979

None of the pieces of pottery in this factory were mass produced : each piece was painstakingly, hand-painted. Note the book in front of the artist being used as a reference to the design.

  5. So beautiful! I also noticed how thick the artist's glasses are. I guess it is true that one could go blind painting such small, intricate designs.
