The Thousand Cranes Vase

A masterpiece of Celadon pottery work from Korea circa 1200 B.C., the Thousand Cranes Vase is the inspiration for the storyline of the book we just finished reading out loud- A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park. She describes "life as usual" in the day of a potter's assistant, as he learns the process of creating Celadon ceramics. I definitely recommend reading her books.
