Early Ming Dynasty Sweet White Glaze Neifu Secret Inscribed Longwen High Foot Cup
Chinese potters have a long history of exploring white glazed porcelain. White porcelain developed on the basis of firing celadon after Han Dynasty. Xing kiln in Tang Dynasty was the mature period of firing white porcelain. Tea Shenglu Luyu once evaluated Xing kiln white porcelain as "silver-like" and "snow-like". Beautiful white porcelain was the essence of Song Dynasty ceramics, with Ding kiln in the north and Jingdezhen blue-white porcelain in the south, and with thick texture, it was sweet. The predecessor of white glaze. In the Ming Dynasty, the firing of white glazed porcelain entered the golden age.
Sweet white glaze is a kind of white glaze created by Yongle kiln. Because many of Yongle white porcelain products are thin to semi-embryonic, they can be illuminated and shaded. On the surface of the thin tire carved with dark glaze, the white glaze, which is as warm as jade, gives people a "sweet" feeling, so it is called "sweet white".
The bodiless production process of sweet white glaze is extremely complex. From ingredient, drawing, billet (repair), glazing to painting and firing, it has to go through more than 40 processes, all of which are manually fired three times. Especially the leverage and art processing are the most elaborate. The billet has to be roughed, fine repaired and refined for a hundred times before it can be roughed to about 0.5 mm thick by two or three millimeters. The thickness of the carcass is mostly less than 1 mm. It is called as thin as cicada wings, bright as glass and light as floating clouds. Blue-and-white pattern is depicted on thin embryos, which is called blue-and-white thin embryo porcelain, and pink pattern is depicted, which is called pink thin embryo porcelain. Wanli has produced "egg curtain cup" (thin as eggshell cup, also known as "eggshell cup"), Liuxia calendula and other refined products. Sweet white glaze is famous for its excellent texture, unique shape design and hard to copy glaze quality. This work perfectly demonstrates the unique charm of this kind of sweet white glaze in all aspects. It is a rare and precious product.
