In ancient China, from imperial gardens and temples to decorative screens and literary ornaments, colored glaze was an indispensable element. Shanxi, the main production area of colored glaze in China, boasts a long history, earning it the title "Home of Chinese Colored Glaze Art." 

The exhibition curators hoped that this event will attract more people to appreciate the beauty of ancient glaze craftsmanship, inspire more folk artists to transform Shanxi's rich cultural resources into outstanding works and exquisite products and let ancient techniques shine with a new brilliance.
