Spring 2015: Chinese Ceramics- Qing bowl with Landscapes c. 1723-1735


This Qing era bowl, drawn with copper stain images and clear and colored glazes, depicts four landscape images intended to be similar to an album of ink paintings, viewed as the bowl was turned.  The copper stain turned red under the overglaze in a firing method that was sometimes difficult to achieve.  This album or page idea, as part of an individual piece, is intriguing.  That this series of images could become a sort of circular narrative is an interesting idea and one that I might have to try sometime.
