First of all and most importantly, the honor of having people who really know something about teabowls (the judges in Korea....potters and tea people) let you know "ya' done good
Second...... the piece goes into the MunGyeong Ceramics Musuem's permenent collection.
Third........ a paid trip (airfare, lodging, meals, and other stuff) to South Korea for a week the following year. (And treated kinda' like royalty when there
I won the Silver Prize in the 2012 MunGyeong Chasabal Competition....... so was invited there again this year.... but I was invited to present two separate lectures at the Yixing Ceramic Art and Culture Festival in China and unfortunately the dates conflict. So I'll be in Yixing then.
I am HOPING that I'll get invited back NEXT year since I couldn't go this year. And also hoping that this teabowl "makes the cut".
