Hand Made White Porcelain Teapot
This handmade white porcelain teapot was produced in Dehua, a traditional local craft of Fujian Province. The production of Dehua ceramics began in the Neolithic period, flourished in the Tang and Song dynasties, flourished in the Ming and Qing dynasties, and developed in contemporary times. Dehua porcelain sculpture began in the Song Dynasty and has never been interrupted, forming a unique traditional craft. One is to mould directly from high-quality kaolin clay, the other is to make a mould of the clay and then inject or knead it. The glaze is applied or not according to one's needs, and then fired in the kiln at over 1000 degrees.
The kneading process is exquisite and delicate, and the shapes are lifelike. In the carved relief decoration, the beauty of the craft and the beauty of the material are blended into one, showing the temperament of the famous kilns, especially in the white porcelain products, which are clear and richly layered, with a milky white, translucent glaze. Very good. Dehua ceramics have always been an important product for China's trade and exports, and are renowned throughout the world, along with silk and tea, as the 'jewel of Oriental art'.
Avoid chemicals, and the porcelain can be cleaned with water or fortnightly with baking soda to reduce stains and maintain its brightness.
