The Ding kiln is a treasure of traditional Chinese porcelain craftsmanship. Originally established during the Song Dynasty, the Ding kiln is one of the 'six major kiln systems' known for porcelain that reflects the height of ancient China's technical mastery and artistic expression.
Distinguished by bold, flowing designs with dynamic lines, Ding ware embodies a carving technique perfected over centuries. The porcelain's white glaze provides a perfect canvas for understated yet striking patterns that evoke nature and movement.
First produced for imperial use, Ding ware represents the zenith of Chinese ceramic art and a timeless gift for connoisseurs of fine porcelain.
