Blanc de Chien ( white from China ) porcelain is usually associated with Dehua kilns. She was made from a mold, not on a potter's wheel. Incised and applied decorations were added by skilled artisans and the wares are fired at the highest possible temperature. The clay itself is quite unusual, having very little iron oxide in it, which allows for the unusual pure color. The shiny wet looking glaze melded to the porcelain makes it so appealing.
