Famous masters and masters from all over the country flowed to Jingdezhen successively.In order to meet the needs of imperial porcelain and the imperial court’s internal and external rewards and exchanges, imperial kiln factories began to be established in the early Ming Dynasty. Among the products produced by imperial kiln factories, they spared no expense to imitate the famous porcelains of the previous generation and pursued the characteristics of artistic appreciation value very prominently.A large part of this is the imitation of famous kiln porcelain in the Song Dynasty, which is also the beginning of the mass production of ancient porcelain in Ancient China.Jingdezhen in the Ming Dynasty is the imperial kiln factory chenghua kiln, there are imitation kiln.Jingdezhen is made of kaolin, which has no iron and very low iron content. In order to imitate the effect of the imperial kiln, kiln workers would add porcelain elements containing iron into the porcelain tire.Then the porcelain that imitative comes out appeared the effect that resembles violet mouth iron foot, enamel also had the feeling of hypertrophy.Ming Dynasty imperial porcelain imitation song dynasty imperial porcelain can be roughly divided into two categories, one is the overall imitation, from the shape to the glaze color, so that it is difficult to distinguish true from false.One is to inherit the song dynasty porcelain tradition, in order to show the superb level of Ming dynasty porcelain, only imitate the glaze color, but retain the shape of the current dynasty porcelain, compared with the song dynasty after the imitation of the Ming dynasty imperial kiln porcelain level can be first-class, reproduce the elegant style of the Song dynasty imperial kiln porcelain.The figure below is a Ming Dynasty official glaze triplet bottle, 24 cm high, 7 cm diameter, 8.5 cm foot diameter, the whole body of official glaze imitation, glaze color gray green, mouth and foot glaze glaze.This bottle body is made up of three identical small cylinders bonded together in a novel shape, which belongs to the original model of Ming Dynasty.Imitation official glaze triplet bottle old collection of imitation official glaze three-foot furnace, 10.5 cm high, 11.5 cm diameter, foot distance 7.5 cm.The furnace is li type with lip openings. Two symmetrical ears are placed in the mouth and a round belly.There are three milk feet under the flag, six burn marks in the furnace, and three burn marks at the bottom of the furnace.The shape of this furnace is simple and simple, and the glaze color and glaze opening pattern are similar to song dynasty porcelain kiln.But the song imperial porcelain without this shape, can be called the Ming dynasty official glazed porcelain imitation of the best.At present, the imitation of the imperial kiln of the Ming Dynasty and song Dynasty is concentrated in chenghua Dynasty.The main models are tripod, zun, furnace, bottle, cup, pot, bowl, bowl, plate, wash, slag bucket, basin holder, pen hill, almost all of them, and most of them do not have an annual model.Chenghua imitation kiln has the following characteristics: first, the bottom of the ware is coated with sauce yellow glaze, the glaze color is green and gray, the glaze luster is strong, and the piece is large and hidden and unclear.This utensil includes cinder bucket, basin holder, etc.Second, the mouth edge and foot are coated with sauce yellow glaze, or only the foot coated with sauce yellow glaze.The glaze is green in green, the glaze is more hypertrophic, the luster is stronger, the opening grain is more dense in addition to a few, most of it is sparse.At the same time, in the middle and late Ming Dynasty, the folk kiln also began to imitate the Song imperial kiln, mainly for honour, bottle, wash, brush hill and other furnishings, daily porcelain such as bowls, plates and so on, almost no, and most of the year.This may be because the imitation process is more difficult, imitators for the purpose of economic interests, tend to imitate the porcelain sold at a higher price.This is obviously different from the Ming imperial kiln.The civilian kiln imitates the official kiln porcelain, the bottom foot is coated with sauce yellow glaze, to show the iron foot.The glaze color is azure blue, and the lines show light yellow to show the effect of “gold wire”.The segments are either dense or sparse, with some segments showing irregular dense hairs.The above is the general situation of imitation imperial kiln in Ming Dynasty.
