Prized by emperors for hundreds of years, the exact materials used for Qingbai porcelain were shrouded in secrecy for generations. It is defined by its bluish-white glaze and intricate decoration. Production reached its peak between the 10th and 13th centuries, mostly in the Jiangxi province, especially in Jingdezhen. Today, Jingdezhen remains one of the largest centers of porcelain manufacturing in the world, and the look of Qingbai porcelain remains highly sought after. Contemporary potters there use the same techniques and kilns as their ancestors while bringing new inspirations to the medium each day.
