The Kangxi period was one of the most productive period of Chinese ceramics. Blue and White glazed porcelain is probably the most immediately recognisable art production which flourished under this period. Blue-and-white porcelain was particularly admired by the Imperial court, and it was produced for both domestic use and for export outside China. Blue and White ceramic is created by painting designs with the distinctive cobalt-oxide mixture under the glaze. Cobalt ores were imported from Persia, and were considered precious ingredients at the time, used only in limited quantities.
