Chinese Ceramics ~ Traditionally Hand Painted Jars and Vases

Chinese ceramics have continually developmed since the pre-dynastic periods, and is one of the most significant forms of Chinese art. China has plentiful natural resources needed for making ceramics. The first ceramics were made in the Palaeolithic era. Ancient Chinese ceramics ranged from hand-built pottery vessels fired in kilns to the sophisticated porcelain wares for the imperial court. Porcelain is so identified with China that today it is still called "china" in the everyday English language.
