"Witnessing Change: the Jingdezhen Experience"

Felicity Aylieff has been making large-scale porcelain vessels in Jingdezhen, China, since 2006. Working in collaboration with small family workshops and skilled craftsmen she has seen an increase in the fortune of many of these individuals, witnessed the entrepreneurial spirit of the young and seen a growing optimism within the development of small businesses.

Felicity Aylieff

In her lecture she will look at what took her to Jingdezhen in the first place, the challenges she faced making work in an unfamiliar culture, and how taking on these new experiences opened up opportunities and extended her creativity as an artist.
