For centuries, the most popular plate designs in the global tableware market are dominated by western or European aesthetic preference. But tracing back the origin of porcelain tableware, China predates those European countries by around 1500 years. From 1602 to 1682, within 80 years, China’s export of porcelain via Maritime Silk Road exceeded 16 million pieces. The exuberance of Qing Dynasty brought the blue-and-white porcelain to the world. Therefore, until now, westerner’s impressions of China’s porcelain are mainly based on those exquisitely complicated patterns that are generally found on blue-and-white ceramic goods. However, from my point of view the aesthetics of the Song dynasty has reached its peak. Whether it is the minimalist shape of porcelain or the grayish glaze, it is not outdated in modern aesthetics. The aim of this project is to create a set of dinnerware, inspired by the Song dynasty aesthetic. I hope my project will correct the historical narrative, educate people in beauty and function of the Chinese place setting.
