BLURB

It can be enlightening to know that some materials cross all boundaries. Porcelain, for example, is remarkably durable, as well as resistant to rust and staining. Because of this it is the perfect material for both fine china, and toilets. Porcelain in fact originated in China, although they obviously didn’t use that word. To the Han, Shang, Sui, Tang and Ming dynasties it was simply know as 瓷(cí). The English word comes from the old Italian word porcellana, meaning cowrie shell, this because of its stark resemblance to a shell’s smooth, waxy, glistening surface. Of all the iconic porcelain sizes, shapes and colors, perhaps none is as iconic as blue and white. First coming to prominence in Jiangxi province during the 14th century, blue and white porcelain was actually banned in China during the 15th century as the Ming dynasty considered it to be too foreign looking…whatever that means. Porcelain of today has a million and one uses, looks, shapes, sizes and colors. Sometimes it’s the original ones that look the best though, the ones that remind you what all the fuss was about in the first place. [Ryan Nimmo]
