White is the light, white is the wind, white is the snow, white is the clear water, white is the hard stone, white is the silky skin, white is the richness of simplicity, and white is the beauty of porcelain that is offered to the world by the thousand-year-old kiln fire of Chinese ivory white china.

——Wang Luxiang, a culture scholar

At the end of the thirteenth century, the great Italian traveler —— Marco Polo dictated his journey in China, and then Rustichello Da Pisa recorded and organized it into a book. This medieval masterpiece showed the broad Asian world to the western people for the first time. This book even inspired Columbus's adventure two hundred years later. And this book is the evergreen Travels of Marco Polo.
 There is a paragraph in the book describing Marco Polo's experience in Dehua City, Fujian Province. "There was a city call Diyun Zhou(now is Dehua) near Citong City(now is Quanzhou), people there made a lot of beautiful chinas such as bowls," Legend says that the westerns saw the ivory-white china for the first time when Marco Polo brought Dehua ivory-white china back to Europe. We can not verify the story's authenticity now, but we know that the word Blanc-de-Chine appeared in French during the nineteenth century. Blanc-de-Chine particularly refers to the ivory-white china that was produced in kilns in or near Dehua. In the nineteenth century, French was popular in Europe, and the upper class was proud of speaking French. At that time, the Russian nobles' French was better than Russian. The French word Blanc-de-Chine also became the pronoun of Dehua Ivory-white Chinas. The ivory-white china has a fine texture, crystal-like fat, and the glaze is mild. The westerns love this ivory-white so much, they had to name it after China.

During the whole Qing Dynasty period, because the westerners adored Dehua Ivory-white Chinas, many were transported to European harbors from Quanzhou's harbor through Maritime Silk Road and then delivered to the royals and nobles to decorate their palaces and castles. Now many world-known museums such as British Museum in Britain and Guimet Museum in Paris, France, still have many collections of ivory-white chinas.

 

White is blank, and blank means everything is possible. Ivory-white china had a noble status in the western world for hundreds of years because of its exceptional quietness and mildness. When people think about ivory-white china, they would think of rare antiques, ritual instruments, character figures from any dynasty that museums and auction houses are enthusiastic about, and precious and ancient materials. In recent years, the ivory-white china International Porcelain Championship was born, leading the trend of ivory-white in the international porcelain industry. Now ivory-white china is both the traditional essence of classic and a brand new cultural symbol. Ivory-white china set off again with a broader horizon, unlimited depth, more modernization, more internationalization, more sense of duty.

The key of the championship is to promote the communication between the Chinese porcelain industry and the world; promote porcelain art to mix with modern art and innovative development. The championship requires artists to participate with pieces made with at least 50% ivory-white porcelain. The championship is held every two years and had been held two times.

Ivory-white China Championship is to redefine the ancient material, ivory-white china, in a modern art atmosphere. This is also a high-end international communication platform based on ivory-white china and participated by professional academic teams made of world-class museums, galleries, academic institutions, experts on art history, critics, many internationally renowned porcelain artists, and nearly a thousand worldwide-known porcelain artists. This championship has positively influenced the global porcelain society, art society, and even the cultural society. The two previous competitions had accepted over 1,300 pieces from over 800 porcelain artists from over 40 countries.

 


Now the third Ivory-white China International Porcelain Championship is walking towards the world with the mild shine, temperature of time, benevolence of Chinese, the beauty of quietness, kindness, and hope. This year's theme is "Borderless," we hope to surpass the boundary between tradition and modern, orient and western, individual and group, routine and surprise, now and future. We hope that "Borderless" will inspire the kindness and love deep in people's hearts, erase the walls and promote communication. Let the clear and pure halo of ivory-white china shine on the future. We are hoping that you will join us in the borderless world.
