These Chinese ink sticks were formed at Chinas oldest and most famous ink stick factory, Hu KaiWen in operation since 1782 in #Anhui province.
Formed of pine soot, animal glue, and pigments, these ingredients are combined then compressed in a mold.
Ink is first thought to have been in use in China since the middle of the second millennium BC. #Ink sticks of this type are believed to have been invented in the third century BC.

Own a piece of history with these fantastic #Qingdynasty ink sticks, or create your own with them. For sale now on #iGavel Auctions, ending March 28th.

Dr. Lawrence Jordan 1947-2007 taught ceramics, art education and a variety of studio and art history courses at Francis Marion College throughout the 1980's and into the 1990's before moving to Norfolk, Virginia. Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Florence, S.Carolina. Before the Vietnam war Larry attended Pratt Institute, NY. His time there was I nterrupted by army service in Japan during the Vietnam conflict (He wished he had only known at the time how much the orient would influence his life in the ceramic arts!).
After the war Larry received his BA, Masters, and Doctorate at Penn. State University. He has had numerous exhibits and sold at major auction houses.

Larry's passions were pottery and poetry, a perfect blend for a man who spent his life trying to understand and to teach "what is called art and what calls for art ... what is the purpose of artistic endeavor and how does man become human through art." Now live closing March 29th

"To many Leica specialists, the gray MD represents one of the most beautiful Leicas ever manufactured", Lager, Vol. I, pg. 220.

This rare Leica MD Gray Hammertone with Visoflex III sold by @everardauctions on iGavel for $187,200. Leitz Wetzlar production records list only ten MD bodies 1102501-1102510 shipped to Leitz Canada in October 1964. Visoflex III housings with 4x magnifiers were supplied in a matching gray finish. The Visoflex front flange was milled out at the six o'clock position; the purpose of this cutout is unknown. Written records (now destroyed) of the former American Leitz and Leitz Rockleigh indicate the majority of these special gray MD's were received and then forwarded to a Leica dealer in the Chicago area for sale. Both camera and Visoflex III are illustrated in color plates of Lager, Volume I, page 159. Visoflex also illustrated in Lager, Volume I, page 221.

Many would have you believe this vase and items like it were produced to deceive. But this famille rose vase (produced in Jingdezhen) most likely was honoring the beauty of objects created hundreds of years before in the very same kilns.
What Qing dynasty reign do you think this 20th century vase is looking back to?

A goodnight on J.S. Bach's birthday. You would think this Grand Fortepiano, made by Freres Graebner in 1793 (sold for $26,500), would have made a great present for him but he would likely have preferred a clavichord!

Listen to some of his music played on a clavier and see if you like it better than on the piano. Go to @pipeorgans to here some great organists, or @ac_eco for a brief dalliance with a harpsichord.
