Jingdezhen Porcelain, China

 

The city of Jingdezhen (also Jingde Zhen) has been a central place of porcelain  production since the early Han Dynasty. In 1004 AD, Jingde established the city as the main production hub for Imperial porcelain.This famous ancient ceramic production center, is located in Jiangxi province on the Kon River portion of the Yangtse river valley about 200 miles (320 kilometers) from Nanking, China. The pottery ” china ” from Jingdezhen was regarded as blue as the sky, bright as a mirror, thin as paper and it sounds like a chime. The photos 0n  Jingdezhen came from francespalmerpottery.com

The Shiwan Town of Foshan City, Guangdong Province,  is also a famous pottery production places in China, renown for its ceramic sculptures.  The artistry of Shiwan pottery developed in the beginning with the production of functional items for daily use, and , gradually formed its own style starting in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It reached its heyday during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911 ) It is currently undergoing a revival with new artists emerging under the guidance of the older masters.

Sea Creatures Clayart

 

Most of the main pottery companies have had flirtations with using various marine themed designs. The sleek, sinuous and diverse shapes of most aquatic animals make them an obvious choice for decorating   curvy pottery forms and the multitude of intense colours in the sea world are well suited to the rich glazing palettes. I have included some examples from Moorcroft, Martin Brothers, Haeger, Royal Doulton, Hornsea, Bornholm, Zsolnay and other fine works from individual ceramicists.

Ancient Octopus pottery - National Archaeological Museum in Athens

 

Sea creatures were widely represented in the decoration of pottery during the Minoan Civilization ( Crete ), which dates back to 7000BC. The octopus motif became popular around 2700BC to 1500BC and was later adopted by the Mycenaeans. Use of the octopus motif was so widespread that it has been speculated it was an object of worship or mystical significance. The “marine style” developed to include pottery which were covered with fish, octopuses, dolphins, starfish and crabs. The Minoans were organised as a seafaring nation, and it is possible their preference of decoration was an expression of reverence to the sea, which offered protection (navy), wealth (commerce) and food (fish). Such vases and jars were made by trained craftsmen and were prized throughout the Levant ( Eastern Mediterranean ), Egypt, Geece and Northern Africa.

Early Japanese societies and other East Asian cultures used pottery before developing agriculture, and seafood was a dietary mainstay, so it’s no surprise that marine life decoration also appeared on their pottery wares. Early Christians attached special significance to the symbol of the fish and they became associated with specific Christian rituals, including the thanksgiving meal (eucharist) and baptism, and pottery fish decorations were popular in the countries of Christendom. French majolica Palissy wares, developed by Bernard Palissy in the 1500’s, then rediscovered in the 19th century, also represents another ceramic era where aquatic animals were prominently featured in its rustique style.

Egyptian-Nile-Perch-1390-1336-B.C.E

 

A ceramic Egyptian “bolti ”  ( Nile perch ) whose breeding habits attracted the Egyptians’ attention. After the female perch lays her eggs, the fish draws them into her mouth, where they stay until they hatch and the young emerge. The Egyptians saw this as a kind of spontaneous generation and thus took the perch as a symbol of resurrection and rebirth. The figure is hollow and contains several clay pellets, representing the eggs, which when shaken served as a rattle,

Pottery whimsical – take the plunge

 

592509150_o_edited-199

 

Loosen up, leave it behind and indulge in a  diversion, because it’s time to take a dive and plunge into some whimsy of the clay. This primordial craft and its busy creators manage to keep coming up with entertaining objects, that remain in contrast to the ever expanding complexities that confront us. The consistency and adherence to similar production techniques through the ages has given the clay products a grounded, steadfast appeal in these times of transience. Plumb the depths of some remarkable creativity infused with a smattering of  fascinating figurines, cringeworthy and clever kitsch, mind boggling sculptures and magnificent manipulations of the almighty mud, all graced with a touch of whim. This latest installment of Pottery Whimsical will have ongoing updates.

More decor deliverance

 

The Valencia contemporary design company Vondom predominantly uses recycled materials and rotational moulding in their manufacturing, which allows them the scope to create large scale planter products and unique furniture. I am featuring a few of their designs here because of the interesting contemporary results they are achieving and also the fact they use models in their marketing of contemporary decor, which is a rarity these days. Maybe I’m slightly biased because I have worked in advertising as a photographer but its good to see a bit of life added into the set. I always thought it was a slight disconnect to see the trend of interior design layouts for people without any occupants. I’ve also added a few other retro images where design marketing and models had a more regular convergence.. Also some other ceramic innovations minus the models.
