I'm currently admiring all the works and research that the residency does there. China, of course is the pioneer when it comes to porcelain, even in historical timelines. I'm pondering on a possible trip in the near future so that I can learn from some of the world's best in the field and apply my own abstract style to this wonderful medium.
heritage is known for its many significant achievements in the
manufactury of luxury and everyday items alike. A blue and white
porcelain jar from Jingdezhen (made during the Yuan Dynasty) was
auctioned off for the equivalent of 230,000,000 ( RMB) yuan in London,
UK in July 12, 2005. A little piece of trivia: this deal was the
highest price achieved by one piece of porcelain in the history of all
porcelain auctions of the world.
Another majestic place I was able to stumble upon in my research, was the European city of Herend. Located near the city of Veszprém in Hungary, Herend holds an esteemed reputation in the manufactury of fine, hand-painted porcelain.
