Beautiful Porcelain from Middle Kingdom

Posted by

L1175147 - Version 2

Fusing modern aesthetics with Chinese porcelain traditions, Middle Kingdom fires beautiful hand-painted pottery that truly embodies quality craftsmanship. I discovered their work at this year's NY Now show and was instantly enamored –– their ceramic and porcelain pieces cover a wide range of techniques and styles. Check out a few of my favorites from the collection below:

  • the pastel colors remind me of McCoy pottery, although the shape and finish of these pieces are more sophisticated. Beautiful.
