Exotic art "made in Guangzhou"——Canton glazed porcelain

2015-June-30       Source: Newsgd.com

Western ice cream cup, Dali style coffee cup, and plates painted with aristocratic family crest jump out from numerous artworks around, which reminds us that this is the production place that exported numerous porcelains to Europe, North America, and even South America.

在距离广州市中心约30公里的莲花山脚,有一座6层的白色瓷砖楼。如果不是因为在房屋侧面“非物质文化遗产广彩保护单位”的字样,会让人以为只是一间小型的工厂。

At the foot of Lotus Mountain, about 30 kilometers away from Guangzhou downtown, there is a 6-storey white ceramic tile building. People maybe will just take it as one of small local factories without seeing the words “Guangzhou Panyu Lotus Glazed Porcelain Industrial Co., LTD” on the side.

在工作室展览间的玻璃展柜中,西式雪糕杯、设计成达利式的咖啡杯、以及有画贵族家徽的盘子在密密麻麻的瓷器中亦然出挑,提醒着人们,也就是这个地方生产出了大量销往欧洲、北美、甚至南美的瓷器。

这些展品并不是主人从欧洲搜罗的收藏,而是真的“made in Guangzhou”,不少还是古董。

These pieces are not collections from Europe, but are real made-in-Guangzhou, many of which are even antiques.

“这个就是当时清末的定烧瓷。”陈文敏从一圈的柜子中抽出了一个带有金边装饰,画有老鹰、玫瑰的盘子说道。

"This is a ‘ding-shao-ci’ (customized ceramic) from the late Qing Dynasty." Chen Wenmin pulled out a plate with gold rim, painted with eagle and rose from surrounding glass cabinets.
