In the country of origin for porcelain, the most famous place for producing porcelain is Jingdezhen in Jiangxi Province. In fact, the citys name is synonymous with porcelain.

 

Walk 15 minutes southward from Tiananmen Square, and you can find a JingDeZhen shop called JiangQingZhai on ZhuShiKou East Street.

 

On my visit there, I found something amazing. One that really reflects a saying about JingDeZhen porcelain, white as jade, thin as paper, bright as mirror, and sounds as chime stone.

 

I discovered two porcelain bowls on a shelf. One is bigger than the other. Both are so thin that even look transparent in some areas. This style is called hollowed-out work, and looks amazing. The bowls are painted in various types of blue patterns.

 

Another appealing piece was a set of ten eggshell bowls. Each is laid inside another, with the smallest in the center. The exterior surface of each bowl has paintings of lovely, vivid flowers and birds. Tag price for this set of bowls is 860 yuan.
