"Making pottery should not be like climbing a mountain, it should be more like walking down a hill in a pleasant breeze."

A stunning large jar made in China. Not sure of the date or period but will try and find out. From the Royal Ontario Museum. The line and form of this jar are really clean. And I always love rounded form, rounded forms are of infinite variety and very tricky also . The Jar has real balance and poise and is all the more beautiful for the fact that the maker is truly anonymous, there is no personality or ego to go with it. Standing alone it has more to it than fired clay, it holds power.
