Jingdezhen:

Poetry in Porcelain

Porcelain, alongside calligraphy and painting, represents the third pillar of China’s grand artistic triumvirate. More than any other art form in its long repertoire, ceramic art has served to link China to a globalized network - procuring and inspiring creative influence from Africa to Indonesia. Its dual role as a technological marvel and a stage for individual expression has made it one of the most fertile mediums for artistic innovation today. Enduring in the footsteps of antiquity, Jingdezhen porcelain has not only profoundly informed art within China, but has entwined itself within the greater narrative of world history. FitzGerald Fine Arts is proud to be part of Jingdezhen’s contemporary narrative, securing a platform for these vaunted legacy techniques well into the future.
