Overview

Jingdezhen


Quick Reference

The main centre in China for ceramic production, in the province of Jiangxi in the south. It was here the Imperial wares were produced regularly from the beginning of the Ming dynasty, at the end of the 14th century, although kilns had been in operation before this time. The area is particularly rich in all the raw materials needed for porcelain manufacture and production still continues today.
