For centuries, China's imperial court used porcelain hand-crafted in the workshops of Jingdezhen to decorate their palaces. They tried to keep their discovery a secret, but porcelain was covertly traded all the way to Europe where it quickly became a treasured item. You may have heard of "fine china" and here is where it got its name.
Patterns are carved on the body of the porcelain using bamboo, bone or knives. After glazing, the porcelain is sent to the kiln for firing.
