Artist Statement

Chinese export porcelain, manufactured almost exclusively for the European market, took off in the 16th century with the expansion of trade routes between China and the West, with one of the major players being the Dutch East India Company. Kraakware, so named for the cargo ships, carracks, that carried them, refers to a characteristic blue and white underglaze ceramic objects; the term also sometimes encompasses coloured porcelain varieties. They date from the late Ming and early Qing dynasties, and are sometimes featured in Dutch still life paintings of the Golden Age. Kraakware originated from the famous historic city of Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province, and tends to be recognizable from the pictorial components broken up into panels on the rim of plates and bowls. Painted onto this pair of plates from the Wanli era, one of the penultimate Ming emperors, is Johann’s personal coat of arms; see the description of Pasu Bunga Qianlong (Qianlong vase).
