Blue sky, white clouds, earth, ceramics
—— an exploration of the sustainable design of waste porcelain.
Using traditional Chinese handicrafts and materials, Jinshan (repair with Urushi), Jiancidiao (sculptures made from broken porcelain fragments) and Urushi, the discarded porcelain fragments are collected and then cut into certain sizes and shapes with pliers, then glued together and painted with Urushi.
The color porcelain fragments that cannot be degraded naturally are recovered, and processed and treated with traditional intangible cultural heritage such as porcelain carving, gold sculpting and lacquer, to design and produce vases, fruit trays, candle holders, paper lids, and decorative paintings.
Tens of thousands of chinaware are produced in every factory every day, and accordingly more defective products and broken china are produced. Generally, white china is stacked and crushed and then added to the china clay in proportion to reuse. However, colored porcelain is directly discarded due to excessive contamination.
At the same time, after standardizing the entire production process, the villagers were taught the production method and connected to the factory to increase the income of the villagers while recycling waste porcelain to a greater extent.
