Far East

Home now - need to find time to collate my notes into a proper posting.

In the meantime - here is the first presentation I put together for my students on the subjects of the trip:

I am leaving GR in a few minutes as a part of delegation of American jewelry scholars and makers in China. Mary Lee Hu is leading a troupe of us across the continent to visit design schools, practitioners, and tribal areas over the next 10 days. I have been looking for an opportunity to travel to China, Korea, Japan, or Vietnam since grad school - and am really excited to be able to share my work with, and experience their history and present. Not sure if I will be able to blog much on my trip, but I'll try.

So blogspot seemed to be unavailable in China... Just getting to the US now. Too much to say about China, the trip, the people I travelled with, etc. It was a great experience, and I am very glad I went. Working on a presentation about the creation of the Miao bubble necklace for my students...will try to update later.
