Wearable tributes to an ancient, regal art
Simone Jewels’ 2022 collection – Portraits of Porcelain – is inspired by three of the most talked about Chinese porcelains from the Qing dynasty that are celebrated for their historical and aesthetic significance, commanding astronomical prices in recent auctions.
The ancient art of Chinese porcelain was a closely guarded technique valued for its durability and delicacy. Porcelain reached its pinnacle in the Qing dynasty with brightly coloured portraits of floral, landscape, and figurative scenes, making it highly sought-after worldwide. The development of painted enamel was also one of the most significant technical contributions made during this period.
Chinese porcelain is otherworldly in its beauty and strength, conferring it a highly coveted status by rulers and empires throughout history.
Portraits of Porcelain distils the evanescence of porcelain and the techniques of its unsung masters into profoundly wearable tributes to this ancient, regal art. Feast your eyes on these storied gems.
