"Guang Cai" is the abbreviation of "Guangzhou weaving gold coloured porcelain". It originated from Guangzhou, and is one of the four famous porcelains in China. It combines the ancient colouring techniques of the Ming Dynasty, and is also painted and baked according to the Western painting method. It retains the oriental elements with Chinese charm and the exotic Western elements. Guang Cai porcelain is famous for its bright colours, rigorous composition and fine painting. It combines the strong colours of gold, pastel and ink to create glittering and splendid effects after baking.
