Foreword

Only when a person settles down can he bear the heart of benevolence.

 – The Book of Changes: Appended Explanations



Once a band of wandering hunter-gatherers, human beings eventually settled down on a piece of land to start an agricultural life.

Living off the land, people planted various crops, raised livestock of all sorts, and fabricated necessary implements and tools to help in their daily living.

From nomad to settler, from pottery to porcelain, time witnessed the development of man as they progressed from barbarism to civilization.

Ceramic art, from its early beginnings to its current form, has always pursued the path of exploration and innovation.

People have always believed that craft is the basis of ceramics, art the soul, technique the means, and beauty the essence.

Returning to nature, life and simplicity are the artistic origins of ceramics and also the core of human nature in art.
