An ongoing exhibition of blue-and-white porcelain is being held in the Chinese Museum of Women and Children. Hosted by China Art Research Institute, it's a brand new category that features the best of both blue-and-white porcelain and traditional Chinese paintings.

What attracts the exhibition goers are not the pots or vases, but the paintings on them. The essential elements of traditional Chinese painting, such as mountains, flowers and birds, are perfectly adapted from rice paper to white porcelain by these renowned painters, while the wit and verve is equally fascinating.

However, it's far more difficult to paint on porcelain. For artists, this is what it looks like to paint on paper, but you can never be certain how the image will turn out when the porcelain leaves the kiln.

Liu Wanming, Chinese Art Research Institute, said, "Painters and craftsmen have different aesthetics, methods and skills. Craftsmen are usually endowed with rigorous techniques and hidden rules of workmanship, but painters have room to be creative."

"It's impressive. To me, it's like a double surprise of creativity and exquisite skill."

More than 100 pieces of work from 28 artists are on exhibit this time. Art lovers and porcelain collectors are able to enjoy the special form of art until Tuesday, and with free admission.
