Ji Shang Zao Wu

Ji Shang Zao Wu is a studio comprised of married artists Wang Li-Ke and Zhao Xu. Both were classmates at the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, from which they graduated in 2010.

After graduation, they opened their first studio with money they had saved from design work as students. They were determined to only create their own designs, starting with incense burners - especially the first version of their "Boshan" Mountain Incense Burner.

Over the years, they have experimented with more types of ceramics and designs. Most of their inspiration comes from ancient classics, but incorporating their own unique style - for example, their ceramic Jianshui with etched patterns are inspired by Zhou Dynasty bronze vessels.
