the field trip...

Remember how you loved school outings and field trips, esp. when the weather was perfect?
I went to the Cornell Museum Tuesday to refresh the batteries for a little while. I was there with the wife Saturday and found a new exhibition space which is in the basement and holds storage items--so on the top floor are some fabulous ceramic pieces, but in the basement is a clutter of HOLY CATS items, all crowded together, my favorite:  Korean celadons!  Many other things too, like glass, and OH, this stunning little Japanese garden, all hiding down in the basement of an otherwise crowded museum…there is currently a Rembrandt print exhibit, featuring these lions, too…

my favorites:  a dragon handled cup, covered jar, those melon shaped ewers and the tiny little faceted bowl…

It's always good to get out and recharge our batteries, and it looks like you found some real treasures. I would love to see those covered jars up close.
