Curated by renowned Asian ceramics specialist John Ayers, this exhibition features the unique white-glazed porcelain known as Dehua ware in China and Blanc de Chine in the West. Dehua wares were produced in Fujian province as early as the Song dynasty (960-1279 C.E.) and became popular during the Ming (1368-1644 C.E.) and early Qing (1644-1911 C.E.) dynasties. Objects on display include Buddhist and Daoist deities, functional scholar's objects and pieces produced according to Western tastes for foreign markets. The almost 80 exhibits range in date from the 14th century to the late 19th - early 20th century, when there was a late revival of Blanc de Chine objects.

Catalog of an exhibition held Sept. 19-Dec. 7, 2002 at the China Institute Gallery.
