Chinese blue and white porcelain

Broadly speaking, blue-and-white refers to ceramics decorated with cobalt blue pigment on a white body, usually applied with a brush under the glaze. First appearing in the Tang dynasty (618 – 906), early blue-and-white ceramics were made with a coarse, greyish body. In the Yuan dynasty (1279 –1368), potters at Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province, a famous China porcelain town, refined clay recipes by adding kaolin clay, and developed firing technology. The craftsmanship of blue-and-white porcelain improved significantly, with products featuring vibrant blue colours using cobalt pigment produced in Yunnan province or imported from the Middle East.

Chinese blue and white porcelain is called qinghua, pronounced “CHING-hwa.” Artisans first began producing the porcelain during the Tang and Song dynasties ranging from 609 to 1279. However, the techniques the pottery is most well known for weren't developed until the subsequent Ming era, which lasted until 1644.
