  Every piece of art tells a story about the culture that produced it. A recent exhibition at the Capital Museum on the Liling under-glazed porcelain is a case in point.

  Liling, a small town in eastern Hunan province, has abundant reserves of ceramic materials. Different from the traditional Chinese blue-and-white porcelain, Liling under-glazed porcelain is famed for polychrome, with the same refined elegance. In 2008, Liling porcelain was officially recognized as part of the national cultural heritage.

  The ongoing exhibition is in three parts: Origins, featuring items produced in the late Qing dynasty, when the industry first flourished. The second part, Treasure, displays household porcelain, especially produced for former leaders such as Chairman Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping. Liling porcelain is used in the government headquarters at Zhongnanhai and is often presented as gifts to foreign leaders, hence the nicknames national porcelain, and red official porcelain.

  The Development section of the exhibition showcases the latest styles of Liling porcelain. Its fresh and elegant look, as well as environmental-friendly quality have enhanced its popularity in recent years. Unlike some other varieties of porcelain, it contains no harmful traces of lead or cadmium.

  The exhibition at Capital Museum, running concurrently with two others, featuring blue-and-white porcelain and the sculptures of Swedish ceramic artists Ulla and Gustav Kraitz, offers visitors a feast of ceramic art.

  Hosted by the Hunan Provincial Cultural Affairs Bureau and Zhuzhou Municipal Government, the exhibition is one of a host of cultural activities being held to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

  9 am-5 pm, until June 20

  Capital Museum, 16 Fuxingmenwai Dajie, Xicheng district, 6337-0491
