Porcelain carving is a traditional Chinese art concerning painting, calligraphy and carving. You can engrave any image or character on the porcelain with diamond pens or steel tools. The images and characters engraved on the porcelain can make it more ornamental and valuable. Recently, seven foreign students from different countries arrived at the Research Institute of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Shandong Yingcai University in Jinan, Shandong Province, to experience the traditional Chinese art——porcelain carving.

Led by Kong Lingke, the dean of the Research Institute of Intangible Cultural Heritage, the students visited the museum of porcelain carving. They were fully aroused when they saw those art works in the showcase so they took photos to keep as souvenir. Then they came to the class room to learn how to do it by themselves. Kong prepared a white plate and some tools needed for the carving for each student. Kong said that the plate is not the ordinary plate but porcelain dish tailored to the carving art in Jingde Town.

Kong Lingke talked a lot about the history and techniques of porcelain carving. The students couldn’t wait to do it by themselves. Kong engraved a plate to show the process of porcelain carving to the students who observed very seriously. Finally, the students began to carve themselves. Though it was more complicated and difficult than they thought, they were not affected by it and paid more attention and time to do it well.

Maryum Sajid is somewhat traditional and after a long-time thinking, she planned to engrave a set of colorful images on the plate, which are said to be a kind of national ornaments with an auspicious moral in her country. After they completed the drawings and writings, the students started to engrave those images and letterings with hammers and gravers that tinkled cheerfully.

The work carved by Md Faisal Talukder was praised by Kong that seemed like the one created by a skilled worker. Taluker said that’s because he is a medical student and uses scalpels frequently. “There are some connects between scalpels and gravers,” he said.

Kong presented the foreigners the work made by themselves as a gift. Through the activity, the foreign students got a better understanding of Chinese traditional culture and art and said they hope to have more opportunities like this to learn Chinese culture.
