Blue and White Style
Blue and white porcelain had its golden age in the Chinese Ming dynasty (1368-1644), but it is believed that this type of porcelain was first introduced in the Tang dynasty (618-906). The proverbial ‘Ming vase’ is still the epitome of the European idea of Chinese porcelain art. The blue color is achieved by a mixture of cobalt oxide and water, and is then painted onto the porcelain before glazing and firing. Afterwards it is coated with a transparent glaze.
