In touch with history at porcelain house
enorth.com.cn   2007-12-12 23:19

 

How would it look, if you took a house, a mansion to be exact, and covered and filled it with porcelain? What if the mansion was "western style" while the porcelain was Chinese and was hundreds, if not thousands, of years old? The result is neither ancient or foreign, but it's beyond anyone's wildest imagination.

Wherever you look, your eyes encounter pieces of porcelain. Be it a bowl, vase or plate, it fits perfectly into the big picture which is nothing less than breathtaking.

A decade ago, the former French residential building, located in north China's Tianjin city was derelict, a mournful reminder of the city's colonial past. Someone came up with the idea of transforming it into a porcelain museum. It took six years of hard work with nearly four hundred million yuan before the idea became a reality.

The porcelain, whether it's a whole piece or just a shard of a once fine piece of work, is antique. There are more than one hundred pieces in total. They come from almost all the country's major porcelain-making regions.

You are welcome to touch. According to Zhang Lianzhi, the current owner says porcelain is not only to be seen, but to be felt and for many a way to reach out and be in touch with history.
