Cut & Paste Shard Art, 剪黏. From it spread northward into Fukien. Because of its historical relationship with Fukien, Taiwan adopted Shard Art as decoration to its Chinese temple. Importantly in the early 20th Century a group of craftsman migrated to Taiwan and start producing Cut & Paste Shard Art there. Today Taiwan is an important centre of the art. It is also a new frontier of pushing the boundary of the traditional art forward. A new generation of children is educated on the art. Today, monochrome pottery coffee cups made in Japan are used as raw material. 剪瓷雕 / 剪花 / 剪黏 25 Jun 2014.

  • Thank everyone. The Chinese Shard Art is one of the folk art with little or no documented sources. The Shard Art Panel in Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion in Pennang is of particular interest as the artist actually put his name and a date on one of the work there. Thus he took his craft into art. Every piece of Shard Art is different and uniquely made. The sculpture pieces at the end of the Powerpoint clearly show some artists are taking these works further down road as an art form. Thankyou everyone for your comments, much appreciated. Have a nice day, as they say in America.

  • Chaozhou was an important historic centre for ceramic exports to South East. There were several kilns in the area to produce low cost pottery. Some of the broken pottery found its way to become the raw material for the making of Cut & Paste Shard Art, 剪黏. From it spread northward into Fukien. Because of its historical relationship with Fukien, Taiwan adopted Shard Art as decoration to its Chinese temple. Importantly in the early 20th Century a group of craftsman migrated to Taiwan and start producing Cut & Paste Shard Art there. Today Taiwan is an important centre of the art. It is also a new frontier of pushing the boundary of the traditional art forward. A new generation of children is monochrome pottery coffee cups made in Japan. 剪瓷雕 / 剪花 / 剪黏 25 Jun 2014.
