Thangka is the religious scroll painting mounted with colorful satin, fabrics and hung in the hall for worship. It is a unique form of painting art in Tibetan culture and its content touches every aspect of Tibetan history, politics, culture, social life and so on. Most of the Thangka handed down from ancient times are created by Tibetan Buddhism.
Thangka has a massive influence in Tibetan culture with distinctive national and religious characteristics as well as exceptional artistic style. Traditionally, dyes used are such valuable minerals and gemstones as gold, silver, pearl, agate etc. and plants like saffron, rhubarb etc. And because of these natural dyes, the painting will have gorgeous color and can be preserved for hundreds of years without any changes in color. As a result, Thangka is known as the art treasure of Chinese ethnic painting, and Tibetan encyclopedia, also the precious intangible cultural heritage in Chinese folk art.
Porcelain appeared in China around 16th century BC, then slowly spread out to Eastern Asia. Porcelain is a ceramic material made by kaolin, in a kiln from temperatures between 1,200 to 1,400 °C. As the production of porcelain continued to develop and became more popular during Song dynasty, the glazing techniques also evolved along with it.
Celadon glaze is jade green celadon color, also known as greenware and a type of transparent glaze, often with small cracks. Longquan Kiln in Zhejiang province is renowned for their celadon glazes.
Copper Red Porcelain
Copper red glaze was created by Jingdezhen porcelain workers in Ming Dynasty. Copper oxides is a coloring agent used while glazing. As the glaze technique is unique and has a relatively low success rate, these two kinds of glazes were very rare and popular in the Emperor’s families. Origo Club porcelain collections are using the same traditional technique of glazing. The shapes of porcelains are elegant and the lines are simple. All the pieces are handmade and the quality has reached the level of the official kilns artworks.
Part of the national Intangible Cultural Heritage list, known since the beginning of Ming Dynasty. It is made with Zisha clay which only can be found in China’s Yixing region . Zisha teapots are beautifully shaped and not only being used as a tea set. In terms of decoration, it achieves perfection by expressing classical Chinese culture such as poetry , calligraphy , painting , seal cutting , and stone carving with artists’ crafts.
