LETTERS¡ªChina Trip with Po Zhou
¡°¡­¡­ ¡­. His skills are many, and varied, but his greatest skill is his
human understanding and concern for others. He is a wonderful human being.

Working for many years to bring ceramics information to and from China and
the western world is his passion. He is a `bridge` from potters and
educators of the ceramic arts from China. He is loved and respected all
through China for his work.¡±

If anyone on Clayart wants to go to China and work, study or teach, Po would
be able to help you get there. The need for teachers with English language
skill is great.¡­¡­
