Chinese ceramic vases are known to be one of the most unique and exclusive luxurious Chinese pieces to have ornamenting our homes. Since the modern dynastic periods the ceramic in China has been developing and become one of the most significant Chinese arts.
China is known to be a country richly endowed with the raw materials needed for making ceramics. Actually, the first types of ceramics were made during the Palaeolithic era. From construction materials such as bricks and tiles, to hand-built pottery vessels fired in bonfires or kilns, to the sophisticated Chinese porcelain wares made for the imperial court. Porcelain is so identified with China that it is still called “china” in everyday of the English speaking countries.
Ceramics in China have been produced since 202BC. Of course the techniques have been improving and, nowadays are produced with the finest quality and on an industrial scale.
