Porcelain Printing

Just like many other things that are presently taken for granted in the culture of most of the people, porcelain is also assumed to have been born in China. As assumed, people started to work with this material in times of the Han dynasty, between the 2nd Century before Christ and the 3rd Century of our Era.

In the 18th Century an exclusive ceramic department was founded in the city of Jingdezhen. And once the Ming dynasty came to power (1368-1644) right there a huge factory exclusively dedicated to porcelain was built to supply many places, but especially the court which lived in Beijing.

As a general rule, they are pieces with a white background and all decorative elements are in cobalt blue. A color made of substances brought from the West, that is why it was called “Mohammedan blue”.

This paint was applied before becoming glazed.

First, the basic materials of porcelain were mixed up, that is to say, feldspar, kaolin and aqua. This mix was molded and shaped and then it was ready to be painted. Then, it was baked in an oven at a temperature of more than 1,250 degrees, obtaining with this process the characteristic graze of these pieces.

The dragon is one of the most traditional decorative elements in the Chinese culture. It is identified with emperors and with the supremacy over its subjects.


To Mokita the elements and stories represented in the Chinese porcelain are inspirational themes, that is why we developed stamp families in cobalt blue for dishware collection exclusively.
