The Story of Qing Dynasty Porcelain. The great Jingdezhen kilns that had supplied the most artistically advanced Ceramics to the world for centuries were
utterly destroyed during the dislocations that led to the fall of the Ming dynasty (1368 – 1644). Gladly, the Manchu rulers of the new Qing (pronounced
Ching) dynasty (1644 - 1911) were enthusiastic patrons of the arts. The Imperial Porcelain factories were rebuilt under the Kangxi emperor and production resumed in 1683.
The development of enamel colours that were opaque were certainly one of the most significant technical contributions made to Ceramics during the Qing
period. The new opaque colours enabled painters to blend tints to create a multitude of shades and hues. Tremendous advances in Porcelain began under
Emperor Kangxi and continued into Yongzheng. The techniques developed were used throughout the entire dynasty era and continue to be used today.
