Overview

Reborn the Chinese Imperial Kiln of Jingdezhen since 1.000 years

 

Nature into Glaze

• Ran Xiangfei uses the old Chinese process of throwing, glazing, firing, and painting, that is as refined and complex as the artwork itself. All his works are handmade in the full ancient Chinese imperial kiln process of Jindezhen since 1.000 years.

 

• His porcelains are pristine, grace and fine, disarmingly simple, contemplative objects whose finishes reflect the panoply of the natural world — spring flowers, mountain under clouds, moonlight, star-filled nights, undulating ocean waves, and fiery sunsets. 

 

• Stemming from the artist’s interest in rare ancient Chinese tea set glazes, Ran Xiangfei seeks to create glazes that have a three-dimensional quality and convey purity and peacefulness. His forms can be characterized as classic, calm, and balanced in aesthetic.


• Based on his many years of research into Song-dynasty ceramics, he has mastered them so successfully and created a series of fine porcelain of his own unique style combined with new innovations and new technologies, that abound with cultural and aesthetic meaning.

 

• Porcelains created by Ran Xiangfei won numerous significant international awards like Best of Best of Red Dot in Germany at age of 23, and are included in significant museum collections as Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
