With dozens of detailed color photographs and readable text, this Chinese art and culture book is an excellent introduction to this treasured craft. Chinese ceramics, a form of fine art dating back to the primitive days, range from construction materials such as bricks and tiles, hand-built pottery vessels fired in bonfires or kilns, to the sophisticated porcelain wares made for the imperial court. The technique of making ceramics saw its heyday in the Tang and Song dynasties. and continued its development into a highly sophisticated form during the Qing dynasty, with multiple varieties, refined craftwork and diversified shapes and patterns. It gradually became the key commodity in China's export trade and gained so much popularity all over the world that it has become known by the name of its motherland—china.

Dale, I read the chapter tying Chinese peoples to Hebrew origins through Joktan. It was most interesting and fairly convincing. I was particularly struck by the figure on a throne or chair that was found in both China and Egypt. Wow! That is a tremendous tying figure. Thanks for sharing. ~ John K. Carmack, Attorney, LDS Emeritus General Authority Los Angeles and Salt Lake City Dale, I read your paper about eternal man. It is profound and mind boggling. You have done a lot of research and have thought deeply about the subject. Are you going to publish it? I think most of us have little idea who we really are. The discussion about DNA is very compelling. Thank you so much for sharing such deep and wonderful thoughts with me. ~ Jack Rushton, Educator, CES, Quadriplegic for 26 yrs. Irvine, California Fascinating thoughts! Eastern Hebrew origins that link China and Asian people of God together, even DNA. Dale has introduced a unique view of the scattering of great populations throughout the world that has the potential to help many of us to re-think such events. A worth-while read for any-one interested in the early peoples of the earth and the connection between peoples, including pre-mortality. ~ Douglas Patterson, Business Entrepreneur, Washington, Florida - Currently in Arizona DNA— there’s an interesting paradox within the DNA. [It is] there are so many bits of information [in there] that it is absolutely very easy to identify you as a unique individual, different than any other individual that has ever lived on the earth or who will ever live on the earth. Each of you is truly a unique creation. But also locked within the DNA are pieces of DNA that you share with your most immediate ancestors, with your brothers and your sisters and your parents and your grandparents. ~ Dr. Scott Woodward, Geneticist, Molecular Genealogy Salt Lake City, Utah

Bencharong, a unique class of Chinese export ware, was made exclusively for Thai royalty and the ruling elite in the late 18th and 19th centuries. Enamelled porcelain containers and dishes for the table and boudoir are resplendent in kaleidoscopic colors inspired by verdant, tropical vegetation. Lai Nam Thong ('gold-washed'), a variant, takes the opulence of this ware to a pinnacle by adding gold as an embellishment. Although Bencharong belongs both in place and time to the broader tradition of Chinese export art for the European and American markets, it is distinctively Thai in style and aesthetics. A wealth of lavish illustrations, many never before published, are visual revelations of Bencharong's splendor. The author traces the history of Bencharong from the renowned kilns of Jingdezhen to enamelling centres at coastal ports in southern China and its final destination - Ayutthaya and Bangkok.
