Stacey Pierson Professor of the History of Chinese Ceramics

Lecture Title: Discarded Beauty: Chinese Porcelain and the Art of Upcycling

Lecture Abstract: Professor Pierson’s lecture investigates ways in which fragments of Chinese porcelain, whether formed by accident or intent, have been reused in global design and artistic contexts from the fifteenth century to the present day. With examples ranging from the garden rooms of Lisbon, to new vessels produced in the Ottoman court workshops and the ‘weaving’ of a porcelain polo shirt by a contemporary Chinese artist, this lecture will reveal the surprisingly long and global history of the reuse, refashioning and upcycling of broken Chinese porcelain.
