2012 was a good year for Qing Art and we hope that 2013 will be even better! Some beautiful new stock has come in and we can’t wait to get it on the site for you to enjoy! Qing Art is also really delighted to announce that Mao Ping is the father of a beautiful baby girl, welcome to the Qing team baby Ruo Fei. Already this year we have been on the local BBC news and there will be a nice article and picture in Isle of Thanet Gazette on Friday February 8th, featuring our Chinese New Year decorations. There are some interesting meetings lined up making a good start for publicity and networking, continuing our promotion of Margate Old Town and Qing Art as we did in 2012.

One of the many new things we have planned started with our trip to China and taking on of new designers, new stock and new ideas! Li, our ceramicist, introduced us to a few of his colleagues and we have the most wonderful vases, bowls and objet d’art coming over in Spring. Remember, our Facebook page will let you know about new products out first as well as our new regular newsletter.
New members of staff
This year we are welcoming two new members of staff. Some of you will already have met Lynn Hudson as she worked in Qing before Christmas, and we are delighted to say you'll be seeing more of her this year! We also will be saying hello to Sasha Van de Kamp, a student from Holland, who will be on a business placement with us through February to April. Exciting times!
April 2th sees Anne-Marie and Mao Ping going to China again to see Qing Art’s lovely designers. This visit will be focusing on Li’s recent ceramic work and new lighting designs from Chen, as she unveils her Summer Collection and colours. We are delighted that the Portico Gallery in Sevenoaks exhibited Li’s work over the Christmas period and know that they would like to introduce more items from our designers in their future programme of shows.
