Ivory white is a color name of porcelain glaze, which has earned the name for its ivory-like texture. The glaze contains the oxide of Titanium, so it looks slight yellowish white, but with shiny bright appearance. Under the sunlight, we can see pink or milky looming inside the glaze. Thus, it is also called lard white (猪油白), or ivory white. In Europe, this kind of glazing color is also called velvet white or Chinese white.
Located in Fujian province, Dehua County enjoys great reputation for ceramic and porcelain production. White porcelain made from Dehua has bright and pure white color with great light transmission. The ivory white (象牙白) and Chinese white (中国白) have been well known both in home and abroad since Ming and Qing dynasty. He Zongchao, Lin Chaojing and Zhang Shoushan, etc were the most famous ceramic artists in Ming dynasty.
