Paul’s Ceramics

My son Paul is in his 3rd quarter at Foothill College here in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is very interested in art and design and has become fascinated with ceramics in particular. Paul recently made a remarkable set of 3 cups on the wheel, decorated with Kanji characters, as presents for his sister Jessica and her fiance Matthew to celebrate their graduations from college this week.  Paul said that he does his best pots when he lets his hands work without thinking too much about it.

Here are some of Paul’s recent creations:

  1. Paul told me he has developed a network of students who read and speak Japanese to help him choose and write what he wants to write. For fun, he also checks their translations against what friends who read and speak Mandarin say his kanji means. Linguistics meets aesthetics.
