Living Craft Tradition – Blanc de Chine
TRESOR’s annual feature Living Craft Tradition will explore a longstanding craft form that still finds contemporary expression. The inaugural Living Craft Tradition showcase will be dedicated to Blanc de Chine porcelain, which has been in production in China since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and is presented in partnership with Ting-Ying.
The exhibition will feature work by contemporary master craftsmen from Dehua including Su Xianzhong, Lan Quansheng and Chen Desheng alongside a selection of works resulting from the collaboration between leading contemporary ceramics designer Peter Ting and a number of Dehua’s most established makers. This will be the first major presentation of Blanc de Chine porcelain in Europe and is in line with TRESOR’s aim to safeguard important craft traditions and introduce them to new audiences.
