Since 1947, Tao Fong Shan, situated in Shatin in Hong Kong, is one of the few places that persists in making hand-painted porcelain. Their artists in residence expressed their idea of the Christian faith with traditional Chinese art, hand-painted porcelain. This series of porcelains are designed by local artist Dixon Ngai (also known as Lam Duen Shan Ming). Inspired by Chinese auspicious symbols and favoured motifs, the patterns present a fusion of the East and West.


The design of this porcelain depicts plum flowering symbolising resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity. (Decorated by hand with overglaze decals)


Microwave and dishwasher safe.

  • Each porcelain piece is covered with a clear glaze, creating a unique milky white colour. Often made into more refined pieces, porcelain can have many other materials mixed with the "kaolin" clay - like silica, feldspar, quartz, glass, bone ash, and/or alabaster. These ingredients help to fortify the clay mixture and, when fired, produce a strong product that shares some similarities with enamel.
