Studying the history of ceramics, I have been captivated by the relationship between East and West and how they continue to influence each other, especially through the ceramic arts. Although there might be considerable differences between the two civilizations, the cultural exchange between them is an important connector of history and has produced a long and rich exchange of ideas between artists and makers. Asian craft traditions have been handed down to the West, and the handmade aspect—even within the factory setting—is still an important concept that allows for the artist’s control of design and quality, which is essential within the craft of the West.
