Hi  Joey

You  wrote :

_________________

  Master Zhang Rucai displayed bottles at this convention. Most were over 100mm or even 120mm high. I looked at one which was about 75mm or 80mm high, and had the bottom solid  quartz, and the top 40% was hollowed and painted with two scenes of ducks swimming.

_________________

That's  very  interesting  news, because  I  thought  that  Master  Zhang  had  retired   from the  active  scene, even though  has custody  of  the  One Bottle  Studio.

What were the   themes  of  the  bottles  he  had  for  sale ?  Chinese  landscapes?

Are  there   any pics  anywhere of the  bottles  he  had ?  e.g. a  little  catalogue ?

The  prices  you mentioned, although   expensive   by  some  contemporary MIPB  artists' works,   are  very  much  on a  par  with  CAC  prices   in HK  where  I have  seen  lesser  bottles  by lesser  artists  on sale  for  close to USD100K  ( ! )

Also  -  how  did   Master  Zhang get  around  USA  and  talk to  collectors ? As  far  as  know  he  does  not speak  English

Cheers
Peter

Peter,

     He produced a hard cover catalogue of his bottles. The themes were historical and literary.
Roseann Chan  produced it,so you should be able to get a copy from her.
      The first 30 pages or so are his awards and photos.

Hi all

Talking about catalogues/books, I seem to recall a discussion about a new Ye (?) catalogue or book but can't seem to locate it.  Can someone refresh my memory on it or point me to it?   Much appreciated

Hi  Joey

Thanks for  the  info

Not  surprised    that the   first  30 pages  were  his awards    and  photos.
That  was the  same  when  I  visited  Yi Hu Zhai  in  about  2010 .
There  was a  huge  ante  -room   full  of   ZRC  placards  etc -  almost as  big  as the  main  exhibition   studio   showroom.

I will  contact  Rosanne  for a  copy  of the  catalog  back  in HK

Any  other  news  re  VMIPB  artists  and their   works    at the  Chicago  convention?

Cheers

Peter

Dear Pat,

     It is the catalogue of the Ye Family produced by Jill (Guo Jie) and her husband Li Hui for the exhibition in Beijing.
   Best,

Thanks!

Just saw this conversation chain.  Master Zhang Rucai does not speak English, but the lovely lady, I assume his wife, that was with him at the Convention speaks English well.    In fact we were seated with them at dinner one evening and enjoyed their company.  His bottles were quite expensive  to me and out of the range that I would consider. I did enjoy seeing his beautiful bottles.

Dear Jo,

     I am not sure she was his wife, but her English is very good. She tried to teach me my Chinese name, and acted amazed that I knew it and could write it.

Hi All

I once  visited  Master  Zhang's  home and  met his wife.
She  is the  same   age  as  Master  Zhang  and  I'm sure  she  does  not  speak  english

Cheers
Peter
