Centuries-Old Ceramics
A craftsman takes newly produced ceramics out of the replica of the gourd kiln on a hill near Jingdezhen, a city in east China's Jiangxi Province, on October 22, 2012. Porcelain experts announced Monday that they produced 3,000 porcelain items using dragon kiln in China's porcelain capital of Jingdezhen. The "dragon kiln", which gets its name from its dragon-like shape, was widely used in China's Song Dynasty (960-1279) to produce greenish-white porcelain, a landmark achievement in China's porcelain-making history. Besides kindling the dragon kiln for the first time, ceramists on last Friday also lighted replicas of gourd kiln and mantou kiln, to mark the efforts to revive the country's historic porcelain-making practices (XINHUA)
