Foreign Friday

Artist creating a cutwork vase
Taipei, Taiwan
December 1979
I loved these cutwork vases and was very tempted to purchase one; however, it was not feasible at the time.

Several earlier posts featured other pottery at the pottery factory.

  2. It seems everything done there is done with skill and a steady hand. Such perfection. I imagine a candle inside the vase making the shadows beautiful

  6. Seeing your picture I have gained a new appreciation for cut-work pottery. I don't know how I thought they did it but that's not it! It is a beautiful art.

  7. Absolutely amazing. Are they sturdy or delicate, or does it depend?
