Among Chinese art and crafts, glassware is ephemeral probably because of the challenge of its various techniques. After the seventeenth century, Qing imperials developed an interest in other geological materials and techniques because of its expansion in geographical territory. Glass-making resurfaced, but China mostly produced glassware in monochrome color using a mold-casting technique. This bowl’s cloud and dragon patterns in strips encircling the exterior of bowl, mimics ancient bronze vessels and is a hybrid of multiple design motifs. The bright color and decoration serve to display the wealth of Qing arts.
