Jingdezhen Porcelain
For 2,000 years, Jingdezhen is known as the Porcelain Capital and ceramic cultural center of the world. In this
city gathering many skilled people and artists, they have been contributing the finest and most beautiful
porcelain to the world with their hard work, and it's porcelain is so exquisite and attractive that it was described
as being "as white as jade, as bright as a mirror, as thin as paper, with a sound as clear as a bell".
 Old working methods and Qing Dynasty kilns can be seen in Jingdezhen .
The potter's wheel is spun counter-clockwise with a stick.
 A dry bowl is trimmed to make it paper thin.
 Blue-white ware is glazed by dipping and puring.
Firewood is specially stacked to dry it and protect it from the elements.
Saggars with fired Bowls.

Inside a large kiln(50' long x 20' high)with saggars on sides and chimney in rear.
The chimney of the kiln is being rebuilt.
The kiln is shaped like an egg, with the narrower part located near the chimney in the back.
 Production techniques used in Jingdezhen today.
Porcelain is mined, powdered, mixed with water, slaked, squeezed, then pugged.
Porcelain is press molded to make an edition of figurines.
Vessels are slip cast, then trimmed. Some are cast in several parts that are luted together.
Sections of large vessels are thrown, dried, trimmed, then joined.
A pot is trimmed in the foreground, while clay is prepared for throwing in the middle ground and centered in the background.
Several young men join forces to throw a large pot on an electric wheel.
A stencil is often used to lay out the pattern on the blue-white ware . Underglaze is then painted over the stenciled lines, which burn off during the firing.
A wet overglaze stencil is removed after it has transferred the pattern onto a fired glazed vase.
This overglaze painter does not use a stencil, but is inspired by a painting in a book.
Red overglaze is painted free-hand onto a fired underglaze blue plate.
Silkscreened overglaze decals are used to create inexpensive repeat patterns.
This gas car kiln with a dolly to move the car onto the track is typical of the kilns used today. Most ware is once fired. Only pieces with overglaze are fired several times.
Although electric and gas kilns have replaced coal and wood-burning kilns, smokestacks from abandoned coal-burning kilns can still be seen.
