The level of European porcelain manufacturing

- May 31, 2020-

China is a big country of porcelain. The English name of Chinese porcelain is china, and it is mentioned that China thinks of China. While China's porcelain is famous overseas, European porcelain technology is also steadily developing.

Innovative civilian porcelains of all generations in China will always be exported to overseas, and the quantity is large until now. These porcelains are very common in auction houses. So some people said that foreigners don’t make porcelain and all need Chinese exports, which is actually wrong. There are many ceramic factories in foreign countries, and they can burn very fine ceramic products by themselves. Let’s introduce today.

On European ceramics, the first sequence must be German Mason. As a result of foreign porcelain auctions, it is Mason who sold the high price. Because its positioning is different from other brands,

This brand was born in 1710, Kangxi 49 years. Positioning is high-end art. On its official website, it will still be written about a certain auction in a certain year, and what price Mason's works were sold for and what price.

A turkey porcelain was auctioned for 1.3 million euros at the 2002 Goodsun auction. This not-so-exquisite turkey is so expensive to sell? In fact, it lies in its historical value. This porcelain turkey was made by Kundler. He created the first porcelain in Europe in 1731, and since then brought the era of porcelain in Europe. He announced to the world with one's own strength that European porcelain was self-sufficient. Therefore, the value of Kundler's works is exceptionally high.

Chinese ceramic art pays more attention to what it is and how old it is, but the West pays more attention to who painted it.

Mason is positioned as a home-made art manufacturer. Its porcelain is not for use, but for heirloom.

The UK's most famous ceramic brand is Wakewood, founded in 1759, the founder is called Wakewood. When it was born, it was like the various high-end ceramics in Europe. It followed the king's route and became an official kiln before being converted to civilian use. So it made special porcelain for Queen Charlotte in the UK and Queen Catalina in Russia, and by 1812, Wakewood launched bone china products. The so-called bone china is to add bone powder to porcelain clay. The porcelain made in this way is more translucent, lighter, and stronger. It is completely European ingenuity, and it is almost the only European contribution to the ceramic industry.

In addition to bone china, Wakewood also has a fist product, which is relief stoneware. This style of porcelain decoration can be said to be unique. When you see it, you know it is Wakewood's product. In addition, Wakewood also has a fist product, not ceramic, but color, or the color collected by the Chicago Art Museum, known as Wakewood Blue. It is lighter than normal blue, but looks very elegant and calm. This reminds me of a sentence that Chai Shizong said. Of course, some people said that Song Huizong said that the rain will pass the sky and the cloud will break. This color is the future. This describes the wood kiln, but I saw Wakewood Porcelain, I think it is also appropriate to describe Wakewood Blue. The cloud has just dispersed, the sky is not so blue, but it has rained, revealing the hope of new life. Perhaps the masters of Wakewood and Chai Kiln were looking at the sky when they were about to reopen the kiln after a rainy day, thinking of recording the poems of nature in color. If this is the case, then it is really the same world, the same dream.

There is also a Danish brand, Royal Copenhagen, opened in 1775. At the time, Royal Copenhagen hoped that it would be possible to make blue and white porcelain. Finally, their Tangcao series was born.

In terms of patterns, the Tangcao series works can be said to be across the ages, even if it is put into today, it is in line with the small fresh and literary young women's hearts. Indeed, it is not as thick as Mason, not as complicated as Wakewood, and only a few The feeling of drawing a touch of grass can be said to have captured the soul of blue and white.
