Free Shipping-Happy Holidays

Letter from Guangzhen Zhou, the Chinese Clay Art
It is the holiday season again and the
year of 2007 has almost ended.
We would like offer free shipping (until Dec. 31, 2007)
to our valued clients and say "Happy Holidays" to

During the past year, we have faced the problems of
inflations for most raw materials and gasoline, the
labors' price rose in China. The US currency
exchange rate dropped. But we have to keep our low
prices and high quality products to keep our
customers satisfied. We have been focused on the
quality improvement. One of the problems was the
CLAY GUN- it was difficulty to press the clay
from the
tube. I had the factory add one more lock piece on the
bar which made it work easier.

Guangzhen Zhou, Chief Editor -

American Ceramic Art Works in the Exhibition at Jingdezhen

these pieces shipped from California to Jingdezhen,
China. The exhibition was wonderful.

Guangzhen Zhou received the Appreciation Certificate

The American delegation spent three nights in Yixing.
They had Mr. Ding, who was a photographer from
Yixing Daily Newspaper, following for one and half
days, and he took many photos for us. The next day,
there was a picture on the local newspaper-Ali and
Howard Shapiro with the director of Yixing Ceramic
Museum, handling the pieces for donation. Next day, a
newspaper called "New China Daily" (the Jiangsu
Provincial News) published pictures of the group of
Americans purchasing clay tools at a local store.
On October 27, right after sending the American
delegation home, Guangzhen Zhou went back to
Yixing for the grand opening of a local ceramic
exhibition and received the Appreciation Certificate
from the Jiangsu Provincial Ceramic Association and
the Yixing Ceramic Association. It said: Mr. Guangzhen
Zhou, Thank you for your contribution to the ceramic
