Old painted pots

Post  Hugo Studeník on Thu Dec 30, 2010 12:42 pm

I have an queastion for Mr. Krebs..
Old chinese pots, white colour are made of ceramic and ,,bear" a white engoba or is it a porcelain? The photos of pots post on internet look as engoba, but I previously think it´s a porcelain. Thanks.



PS: Sorry for my english.

Hi Hugo,
Sorry, my English is also not so good. Embarassed

The pot on your photo is a Japanese porcelain pot.

The frogs on the pot come from a Japanese fairy tale.

I have also such pottery pots, but that is ceramic, not porcelain.

Here you can read about the history of the frogs.

Hugo

Very much looks like porcelain to me with underglaze painting and a clear glaze on top. If the painting is slightly raised then it may be engobe painting unless the engobe has been inlaid.

Thank for answers. I see, so, in generaly, pots this type can be porcelain and also ceramic with white engoba. But, from photo, it´s can be difficult discern which technology was use.

Isn't the test of porcelain that it is translucent? Can you see light through it?

Hello Hugo,
It is not that difficult.
Your pot is a porcelain art.
Only the pot at about 1300 ° C is burned. Then the images with color glaze (not engobe!) painted, and again fired at about 900°C to 1000°C.

Hi Kev,
there are also quite thick porcelain

Best regards
Peter
