They shifted from hand to hand, from place to place. Rare relics whose importance was forgotten over time. Made for Emperors in the past, used today to keep umbrellas, to water tulips, or to hold incense in a monastery.

Song Dynasty Pottery
The pottery of the Song Dynasty is one of the most revered of the Chinese culture. If we could describe it with one word, it would be “subtlety”.
Ceramics from the Song Dynasty are highly influenced by the principles of simplicity preached by Confucianism.
During this period underglaze blue was not popular, since it was considered too ornamental. Instead, green ware or celadon were appreciated as some of the highest forms of pottery. Simple, with monochrome designs, they were considered extremely beautiful for their perfect shapes and the quality of their details.
Usually these ‘highest forms’ of ceramic were reserved for the court and the literati.READ MORE
Yuan Dynasty Pottery
During the Mongolian reign over China, pottery evolved adapting to new styles and techniques. The ideas of simplicity based on Confucianism that before ruled art now gave way to experimentation and the flourishing of underglaze painting in cobalt.
It was the ‘golden age’ of blue & white porcelain.
The impact of this method of painting was so important that it is considered the “last great innovation in ceramic technology”.
Soon, blue & white pottery began to be appreciated for its gleaming blue tones and the details of their drawings— usually depicting dragons, warriors, or daily life situations.READ MORE
Ming Dynasty Pottery
The Ming Dynasty was an extraordinary period of innovation for Chinese ceramics. It was an era marked by cultural exchange, with new styles and forms brought to China by other countries.
New colors, forms, and styles began to be accepted in pottery. A new technique developed during this period also allowed to draw crispier lines, but in exchange the color of the blue cobalt became duller.
During the Ming era ceramic was developed to new heights of perfection, rivailing with other highly-prized forms of art such as calligraphy and painting.
It is also possible to find reddish tones in Ming pottery, achieved by using copper instead of cobalt.READ MORE
Qing Dynasty Pottery
During the Qing Dynasty craftsmen produced varied porcelain styles, continuing with many of the techniques developed during the Ming. Using different types of overglaze colors became a popular practice.
Shapes and decoration became at times increasingly complex and colorful. This led to a new wave of appreciation for pottery as a high form of art.
However, blue and white porcelain continued to be the king, becoming more popular and laying the foundations of an artistic style that became one of the greatest exponents of Chinese art.READ MORE
