Aubergine Glaze

Aubergine purple is a significant colour of the Fahua type pottery. Fahua “designs with boundaries” is a term describing a style of Chinese ceramics of the Ming period, likely originating from connoisseurs of the 1920s and does not appear contemporaneously (1368-1644) with the artefacts themselves. Fahua refers to a style and pallet rather than a specific kiln or region of production. The fahua type ceramics show bold and colourful designs using fluid, low-fired overglazes that compliment designs that are accentuated with shallow relief or with incising on the clay body that are reminiscent of cloisonné whereby the fluid glazes are to varying degrees contained or flow over raised lines of the body. Pieces of the fahua pallet appear to have been produced both in Shanxi in the north and Jingdezhen in the south.
