China's white porcelain is popular in Europe for its traits of “white as snow, bright as mirror, thin as paper, and sound like chime stone”. It was named by the French as Blanc de Chine, namely “China White”, known as the best of Chinese porcelain.
The Blanc de Chine International Ceramic Art Award (ICAA) has been held since 2017 to safeguard and carry forward this splendid history, promote the international exchange of contemporary ceramic art, and give impetus to the integrative and innovative development of ceramic art and contemporary art.
The ICAA is an international competition for ceramic art held every two years, aiming to bring together the world's outstanding ceramic artists, and to rethink, define and extend the dimensions and depth of ceramic art with their vision, creativity and artistic techniques. Innovative white porcelain works at the forefront of contemporary ceramic art will be awarded according to the selection and evaluation of the jury committee.
