“China White? Dehua Porcelain” international tour exhibition team visited Puebla Celia Ceramics Company in Mexico


About 100 kilometers east of Mexico City, the capital of Mexico, lies Puebla, Mexico’s “City of Colored Porcelain”. The local area is rich in Talavera ceramics, and its pottery craftsmanship is included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. On the afternoon of March 18, local time, the “China White·Dehua Porcelain” international tour team entered Puebla, Mexico, visited the Celia Ceramics Company, and had a discussion with the person in charge of the company, Elizabeth Perrault.

With the help of this exchange and visit, the “China White·Dehua Porcelain” international tour team had close contact with the Talavera ceramics production line, learned more about the Talavera ceramics production technology and production process, and focused on Fujian Dehua Ceramics Industrial Park and Seychelles. Liya Ceramics Company conducted in-depth exchanges on cooperation opportunities in ceramic production technology, ceramic cultural industry, brand marketing and promotion, etc.

Chinese porcelain has a long cultural relationship with Latin America. As early as the mid-16th century, the “Manila Galleon” known as the “Chinese Ship” was loaded with Chinese porcelain and traveled across the ocean to Acapulco, Mexico. Expensive and exquisite Chinese porcelain was sought after by the upper class. Since then, Chinese porcelain has been gradually sold to the Mexican market and has profoundly affected the development of local porcelain. At the end of the 18th century, a total of 46 porcelain workshops in Puebla, Mexico, imitated Chinese blue and white porcelain and created Talavera porcelain based on oriental aesthetics and craftsmanship.

Fang Junqin, the head of Dehua County in Fujian Province, said that Dehua is a thousand-year-old county and a thousand-year-old porcelain capital. During the Song and Yuan Dynasties, with the rise of Quanzhou Port, “the largest port in the East”, Dehua porcelain became one of the main export commodities of the “Maritime Silk Road”, playing the role of “envoy of world cultural exchanges” and playing an important role in Mexican porcelain. industry development. China’s Dehua white porcelain and Mexico’s Talavera ceramics both have profound cultural heritage. After years of baptism, they have developed “ceramic business cards” with their own cultural characteristics. I hope that through this visit, we can enhance the understanding between Chinese and Mexican ceramic companies and promote Dehua Ceramics has entered the horizons of the Mexican people, creating more opportunities for closer exchanges and cooperation between the two sides.

Fang Junqin said that at present, Dehua has more than 4,000 ceramic companies, with more than 100,000 ceramic workers among a registered population of 355,000. More than 60% of the county’s ceramic products are exported to more than 190 countries and regions, making it the largest in China. A production base for ceramic handicrafts, tea sets and flower pots. At present, America is still one of the main export markets for Dehua Ceramics.

Fang Junqin said that Dehua County supports more ceramic companies to build overseas warehouses, further expand overseas markets, and promote Dehua ceramics to “go global.” This time, we hope to cooperate with Celia Ceramics Company to build the “Chinese White Dehua Porcelain (Mexico) Promotion Center” and adopt the “listing authorization + state-owned enterprise cooperation + agency sales” model to build a production, supply and marketing docking platform with Mexican companies to ensure smooth communication. Supply and marketing information helps the coupled development of German and Mexican enterprises to achieve complementary advantages and mutual benefit.

Perot said that there are traces of Chinese porcelain in many places in Mexico. The international tour of “Chinese White·Dehua Porcelain” to Mexico is a good opportunity to expand the international influence of Dehua, the “Ceramic Capital of the World”, and build a bridge between the two countries. A bridge for exchanges and cooperation in the ceramic industry. Celia Ceramics Company is willing to cooperate with Dehua Ceramics Enterprises to promote ceramic cultural products, deeply tap the cooperation potential of the ceramic industry, strengthen the development of the ceramic cultural industry, and let more people in the world understand and love ceramic culture.

We know each other no matter how far we are, but we are still neighbors thousands of miles away. Fang Junqin said that Mexican ceramic companies and economic and trade delegations are welcome to visit Dehua County to discuss cooperation, experience the cultural pulse and unique charm of Dehua white porcelain, and share new opportunities for the development of the ceramic industry.
