Grace is probably fast asleep in Yingge as I write this. I spoke to here yesterday (almost two days ago, thanks to the Earth’s never-ceasing rotation). She was about to begin the final firing of her work, and preparing for the Yingge County Ceramics Festival, near Taipei.
Firing large work is nerve-wracking because any miscalculation or an act of God can cause warping, cracking, or other kinds of destruction. But Grace is an expert here — I just hope to hear how it went very soon.
I’ve updated the weather box to display data from Chiang Kai-Shek Airport near Taipei, and the map link now points to Yingge (Ying-ko).
