Presented by Bradley Bailey
Ting Tsung and Wei Fong Chao Curator of Asian Art

October Topic
Pot Pourri

Bradley Bailey discusses a beautiful Pot Pourri and its journey as an early Qing dynasty celadon that, over centuries and across thousands of miles, transformed from utlitarian vessel into prized treasure. This talk explores the art and science of Chinese ceramics, the culture of the imperial kilns, and the history of Europe’s fascination with porcelains from the East.
