Women's Work







We visited a factory that did beautiful reproduction work of the different dynasties. The studio was well lit and comfortable and the women were happily decorating some absolutely beautiful pieces. The time and skill involved in decorating these pieces was way over the top from what I thought went into them. What was I thinking????? I loved the tall neck vase the woman in orange was decorating. The finished piece was in the showroom for 6500 yuan or about $870 bucks. I don’t think decorating these pieces would be an easy task after a night on the town and the morning after shakey hand. Check out the age of the young girl in training to be a decorator. No art school for this kid!!!
