In terms of the exchange and influences between art crafts, a special interest in Chinese ceramic imitations of Western glassware grows in the past two decades. Based on such scholarly foundation, this paper aims at a comprehensive study on how influences from other crafts, here the imported glassware in particular, inspire and enrich the stylistic repertory of Chinese ceramics, from Tang to Song dynasties. During this period, the development of aesthetics and production techniques for Chinese ceramics has reached its first peak.
This paper collects and examines reliable examples of ceramic imitations and their glass prototypes, which can be divided into three groups via their styles and techniques. Also, this paper clarifies what traits of Western glassware were chosen and adapted by Chinese potters to their works. Furthermore, the development of local glass industry, the import of Western glassware, along with status of both local and imported glass works in contemporary Chinese society, are explored to shed light on the reason why Chinese potters chose to imitate imported Western glassware alone. The issues of exchange between different crafts and cultures, and their significance, are also main concerns.
