For all of our readers who are experts or interested in Southeast Asian ceramics, bookmark the new online catalog published by the Smithsonian’s Freer and Sackler Galleries. It’s your one shot stop for in-depth information about Longquan ware covered jars from Zhejiang province, China, or Alms bowls from Burma.
Celebrate the creation of this new resource by participating in the webinar, “Ceramics of Mainland Southeast Asia,” to take place Tuesday, June 23, 2009, at 8:00 p.m., EDT, in collaboration with the John Hopkins University Museum Studies program. Join Louise Cort, curator of ceramics at the Galleries, along with a panel of experts, for a discussion of how the development of ceramics and the history of Southeast Asia are intertwined, and the clays and used in Southeast Asian ceramics.
