The New York Ceramics and Glass Fair 2015 at Bohemian National Hall, Jan 21 – 25

For those who love ceramics, pottery, and glass from the 17th-21st centuries, visit The New York Ceramics and Glass Fair 2015 which takes place January 21 – January 25th at the Bohemian National Hall (321 East 73rd Street, between 1st & 2nd Ave).  There is a huge array of beautiful pieces from the United States, England, Europe and Asia.  Take a look at some of my favorites below. 
 
Being a dog lover, I couldn’t resist these ceramic dogs that were made in China in the 18th century, designed for the European export (Santos Gallery, London).  Anyone recognize what breed of dogs these are? 
The color is still brilliant: Antique Porcelain Chinese TeaPot, Santos London
Vipoo Srivilasa, The Patience Flower, 2014, Made in China (Ferrin Contemporary)
Ceramic Plate by Professor Chen Yan (Chen Yan Arts, Fu Jian, Fu Zhou Province, China)
 A piece by Steve Tobin, glazed ceramic and glass (Iliad)
 
Vase by famed Japanese Ceramicist Rosanjin

I thought the piece below was ceramic, but it turns out that it’s a glass piece found by a British soldier who served in China in the early 1900’s.  I also learned that you can not date glass, so one can only guess at the age of the piece.
