“Children Playing” is a recurrent theme in Chinese painting and ceramics. In practise children love playing with boxes, and they stand as a metaphor for the expectations and restraints of later life.

Finished engraving two new graal pieces. They will go into traditional chinese porcelain shapes probably next week. “Three old friends of winter” into mei ping shape, and “Children playing, with boxes” into a topless jar shape.
Contact http://www.philipstokesstudioglass.com.au/art_glass/art_glass.htm for times if you’d like to see them blown out. It’s exciting.

probably 21 oct in the morning.
