Translated by Shu

Quotes about porcelain:

“Common clay must go through the heat and fire of the furnace to become porcelain. But once porcelain , it can never become clay again.”

“A clay pot sitting in the sun will always be a clay pot. It has to go though the white heat of the furnace to become porcelain.”

“As a bathtub lined with white porcelain, when the hot water gives out or goes tepid, so is the slow cooling of our chivalrous passion, o my much praised but-not-altogether-satisfactory lady.”
Ezra Pound quotes

“Her work is exquisite, the look and feel is unique. She uses the medium to its best advantage — porcelain shouldn’t be burdened with a lot of paint.”
Aida Pasternak

“Porcelain is pretty magic. The finish of it, the gloss … it’s very strong, strong as it can be.”
Susan Schultz

“Since the various types of Chinese porcelain were made for specific markets, including Portuguese, Dutch and English, this was reflected in the subjects. A good example would be the pair of pug dogs, popular in England in the 18th century.”
Michael Cohen

Blue and white porcelain info:

“Blue and white wares” (Chinese: 青花; pinyin: qīng-huā; literally “Blue flowers”) designate white pottery and porcelain decorated under the glaze with a blue pigment, generally cobalt oxide. The decoration is commonly applied by hand, by stenciling or by transfer-printing, though other methods of application have also been used.

The technique of cobalt blue decorations seems to have come from the Middle-East in the 9th century through decorative experimentation on white ware. Cobalt blue pigments were excavated from local mines in central Iran from the 9th century, and then were exported as a raw material to China.

The blue-and-white technique was fully developed in China with porcelain technology in the 14th century. On some occasions, Chinese blue and white wares also incorporated Islamic designs, as in the case of some Mamluk brass works which were converted into blue and white Chinese porcelain designs.
