    From Jingdezhen: Simon Hulbert’s New Porcelain Collection

    Over the past decade Jingdezhen has been part of a vibrant ceramic renaissance, with local and international ceramic designers traveling to Jingdezhen to learn from the techniques of the masters and create new exciting work.

    Established ceramic artist Caroline Cheng felt so inspired by the “Porcelain Capital” that she opened The Pottery Workshop in one of Jingdezhen’s ancient ceramic factories. A beautiful space designed and originally managed by UK potter Takeshi Yasuda that houses design studios, workshops and galleries as well as a weekly Creative Market showcasing over 100 local makers.

    Simon Hulbert’s Porcelain Collection

    Simon’s Porcelain Collection was created during a recent residency at 'The Pottery Workshop' in Jingdezen.           

                     

        

                   

        

     

    The series mixes modernity with the millennia-old heritage of Chinese porcelain and features hand painted brush strokes that capture the energy and artistry of traditional Chinese calligraphy.

    Each piece is of exceptional quality and chimes with the aesthetic uniqueness of porcelain, namely its fine strength that combines levity and toughness.

    With smooth minimal contours and a soft overall finish the work exudes a subtle, understated sense of well-crafted luxury, especially the incredible rich copper red glaze.


     

     


    The series contains over 100 beautifully presented, functional pieces designed to be used and enjoyed as objects that enhance the rituals and ceremonies of everyday life.
