TRADITIONAL JINGDEZHEN WARES FROM CONTEMPORARY KILNS
< Back


02 Apr 2009 - 30 Aug 2009

The University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong co-presents with the Cultural Bureau of Jingdezhen an exhibition of traditional Jingdezhen wares by contemporary kilns. The exhibits include jars, vases, bowls, flowerpots, brush pots, dishes, and tea sets.

In recent years, many collectors and scholars have been shocked by the wonderful replicas of the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) imperial wares made by the masters in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province. The Museum has selected 135 items of monochrome and polychrome wares by two famous Jingdezhen kilns, Jiang Yao and Huang Yao, to facilitate understanding of this imitative art.

Most of them are modern imitations of the ancient porcelain in both public and private collections. These wares are painted and glazed in traditional styles, in which their lively forms and beautiful colours are undoubtedly the continuation of the skills and intelligence of Jingdezhen potters. They provide a good opportunity for visitors to compare the genuine old works and the modern imitations.
