There is a nice collection of porcelain being shown this weekend in Liuzhou. A group selling vases, pots and figurines has set up shop near The People’s Square. I went down on the recommendation of a friend and took the macro lens along. I gather most of the porcelain comes from Jingdezhen in Jiangxi Province, which I also gather is famous for it’s China “china”. This is all mass-produced stuff, not prized individual works of art but that’s not to say the quality isn’t good, far from it in fact. Taking into consideration the quality and the post-bartered price, I picked up a few bargains. How much you ask? I will tell you that while I walked in, I had to take a taxi out. Taxi full = wallet empty. Thanks Ken.

The Chairman did NOT make it home with me but the other pieces you see here are now adding some “flava'” to the humble abode. The place needed some color to play off the one red wall and and 21 white walls. Yeah. I counted. I got nothin’ but time. You can see more of the pottery here.
26C (79F) here as I write this, cloudy and looks like it could rain any moment. The humidity is still there but compared to this time last year, it’s quite comfortable. I got the go-ahead to ramp up the workout regimen, beginning tomorrow I expect that muscular pain (and hopefully not heart pain) will be the norm for a while.
I may not be around much for a couple of days, still pulling ideas together for the blog/website re-design and I need to get all that info relayed to Ryan McLaughlin over at Dao By Design. I am hoping to have it up and running with the next few weeks.
See ya when I see ya!
