How did Jingdezhen become the 'Porcelain Capital'?
From the perspective of the history of crafts, this book discusses the aesthetics and culture behind porcelains.
A Picked History of Chinaware selects ten important nodes in the development of Chinese porcelain. This book inspects the 'picked' porcelain pieces and illustrates not only a history of crafts, but also of culture, aesthetics, technology and trade. It focuses on the important role of Jingdezhen being the 'Porcelain Capital', and the porcelain industry revolution brought by the development of technology in Jingdezhen.
I admire the author's effort when reading The Picked History of Chinaware. Reading history and the whole from the debris is a kind of effort. This is similar to the "hometown geography" and "hometown literature" advocated by the academic circles. Rhetorics such as "One Flower, One World" have real meaning in this book. "The world is so big, I want to see it." In fact, you can see the wonderful world from the foothold.
