I have curated more than 20 professional artists' oil paintings, ink paintings, sculpture pottery, installations and other art exhibitions. At the same time, we organize artists activities forsketch and plein air painting. Whereever it is rough northwest, beautiful Jiangnan, or old water town, we explore more artistic elements. Years experience in curatorial and creative have led me to try more painting forms.
After several visits to Jingdezhen, a desire of making a combination of paintings and ceramics in the city area has become stronger. Pottery is the media of art, which I think, between art and everyday life. For Chinese understanding, it can be described as "the combination of god and shape". The beauty of ceramics in China is not limited to a tea cup, but also the legend of fire and mud in the millennium. My inner instinct tells me that painting and pottery should not only be bought, but should flow from the fingertips of every sentient person, and can be touched by this outgoing emotion. So I decided to share this experience with more people. I can give you one more reason for people who want to "fall in love with themselves " even they haven't been to Jingdezhen.
After some careful planning, the experience “painting on porcelain” is combined with the art cafe. In such an elegant space full of artistic atmosphere and rich coffee aroma, chat with friends, and feel the slow of time. Here, as an artists I would like to share my most relax time wiht you, but also a spiritual home that is nourished by the art at the heart of the city.

The experience was amazing ! The location is great (very artisty), and Julie was very patient and great at adapting to our level (we are terrible painters), we still got beautiful result. She explained the processes to get the china (porcelain) and what traditional Chinese paintings look like. We choose one of the drawings from one of her books. I can't wait to get the final result ! Thank you Julie !

This was a wonderful experience! Julie was a helpful and encouraging teacher and I left feeling proud of my work. She cared very much about my experience and worked to help me create what I wanted by showing me different techniques. She is obviously very skilled, but she was very patient with me as a beginner. It was a little hard to find her workshop, but Julie was very responsive and met me to show me the way. I cannot wait to see how my pieces turn out and share my photos with everyone at home!

画瓷还是第一次尝试,就算写写画画都是许久之前的事儿了,所以还有些小紧张😓,Julie 老师耐心介绍颜料,白胚的特性,以及需要注意的事项,并挑选了两幅盛开的玉兰作为题材作为起步尝试……最终两个小时的作品还算不错,期待成品出炉……
