Exhibition Opening
Earth, Fire, and Life: Six Thousand Years of Chinese Ceramics
China’s historical role in the global ceramics market is so pervasive that in English, "china" is a synonym for porcelain and similar wares. We invite you to examine more than 100 pieces of "china" created and used as China took shape, and became the civilization we know today. Supported by The Ortiz Center, New Mexico Humanities Council, Eason Eige, the Tang family, the Chan family and Mr. Ed Jeung.
