Through a unique linkage, the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, and West
Virginia University have teamed to offer a comprehensive study opportunity
for students and the serious advanced or professional ceramic artist/potter.
The Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute is considered to be China’s finest ceramics
art and design school. We have teamed to offer a study and travel program in
the Peoples Republic of China where students will have the opportunity to
study with some of China’s most prominent teachers and ceramic artists.

Imperial Blue & White Porcelain Capital of Jingdezhen, Qin’s Terra Cotta Army,
Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, the hustle and bustle of Shanghai.
Join us for a experience of a lifetime!

China’s roots in ceramic art history are strong and deep. For thousands of
years, Chinese artisans have developed and mastered techniques and artistry
that has set the standard of excellence in ceramics throughout the world.
High fired porcelains, underglaze and overglaze techniques, celadons, copper
reds, temmoku, yaoware carving, ash glazes and tri-colored lead glazes are
just a few of the contributions made by Chinese artisans over the centuries.
