Beauty in Blemishes

The production of Jingdezhen’s ling-long porcelain is individually processed by hand at every stage. This results in blemishes which are inherent to the production techniques. Irregularities such as differences in colour tones, spotting, unevenness in glazed surfaces etc. can be found in every piece of ling-long porcelain. Supermama considers such imperfections a signature character of ling-long porcelain design. Examples of irregularities which gives ling-long porcelain its characteristics are shown below.
