    Originally created from kaolin and feldspar in a kiln, it is often referred to as “china” or “fine china” for its country of origin. Today modern porcelain is crafted from varied materials. While Kaolin is still the primary clay in the craft, different additives like quartz, alabaster, and ash are added to it, as well as minerals like copper and blue cobalt for the coloring we see in modern chinaware. It was primarily the English and Germans who were the first of Europe to successfully recreate the Chinese craft dating back to the Shang Dynasty period, which spanned from 1600 BC to 1046 BC. Today the process is carried out by several companies by forming a clay past which is shaped before being fired in a kiln. After this it is glazed and fired again to produce the sheen china is known for.

  • While originally created for everyday use, as the creation practice became more widespread and developed more artists involved themselves with china creation using it as a medium. These pieces, and those in this tradition, became something reserved for fine dining for their value and fragility compared to new materials. Be it for a wedding gift, anniversary, or to treat yourself, we carry the finest offered by Royal Porcelain, Lenox, Spode, Mikasa and others. For your enjoyment.
