Members’ Sharing Programme

Acquisition Experiences: The Good, the Bad, and the Inbetween 

This was the third in SEACS’ 2020 programme of member presentations. The focus was  ‘Acquisition Experiences’ and the artefacts ranged from several Tang artefacts (a mingqi figurine, a Changsha bowl, and a phoenix-headed ewer) to a contemporary Vietnamese ceramic sculpture by Nguyen Khac Quan, a selection of small blue & white Yuan jars, to several Japanese ceramics, a Staffordshire figurine of Lord Raglan (1854), and a modern ‘Xuande period’ cricket container from Jingdezhen. Every story included a lesson learned, an amusing incident, a successful auction result, or an unexpected outcome. Members dialed in from Tokyo to Toronto and all agreed it was a most entertaining and fruitful evening.

景德镇 Jingdezhen

Jingdezhen‘s Supply Chain from Fu Liang to Guangzhou 

Located in Jiangxi Province, in Southeast China, China’s most famous ceramic production center was ideally situated in terms of both natural resources and location. In the Song Dynasty (960-1279), the emperor Zhenzong (宋真宗) selected Jingdezhen (景德镇) to be an imperial porcelain production center in the year 1004, becoming the main imperial production center until the end of the Qing era.  During the Ming (1368-1664) and the Qing Dynasty (1664-1911), the quantity of porcelain produced by Jingdezhen increased dramatically both in production as well as the quality of its products. Jingdezhen had become an industrial center of export wares.  This presentation highlighted the sequence of processes involved in the production and distribution of Jingdezhen ceramics. You can download a pdf of all the slides here.

Tracey Yeh is a Singapore resident and a long-time volunteer docent with the National Heritage Board, guiding in the Asian Civilisations Museum for eight years. She is originally from Taiwan but has also lived in the USA where she obtained an MBA from Tulane University (located in the enchanting New Orleans, Louisiana).  She works as a vice president of a US fintech company that specializes in building data centers around the world. She is a Certified Purchasing Manager (C.P.M.) by profession, so the supply chain is a topic very close to her heart. Tracey gave this talk previously to the Singapore docent community and it was by popular demand that we asked her to repeat it for members of the Southeast Asian Ceramic Society and our guests. Guests dialed in globally, included a stalwart group from California.

Date: Wednesday, 16 September, 7:00 pm

Persian Architectural Tiles

The spread of the Islamic faith also facilitated its culture and art through the ancient world. Although Islamic art retains an overall character, there are a great many traditions and local preferences that emerged over time. Islamic architectural ceramic tiles can be regarded as representing a high point in one of the most magnificent forms of decorative art in the world. Margaret focused on the development of the monumental architectural tiles in Iran (formerly Persia). She also examined the principal styles of ceramic tiles, their decorative designs and techniques as well as touching on the links between Persia, the West and Southeast Asia.

Margaret White is a teacher by profession and lived in Singapore from 1991-2011 where she became heavily involved in most aspects of the Friends of the Museum including its President and Advisor. Her passion for Asian art and culture spurred her on to complete an MA in Southeast Asian Studies from the National University of Singapore. She has taught in the Department of Visual Arts at La Salle/SIA College of the Arts and designed workshops for teachers and students visiting the art museum. She has served on the Committee of Management of The Asian Arts Society of Australia (TAASA) since 2012 and for the last 7 years she has convened the NSW Ceramic Study Group. She continues to lecture, write and paint. Margaret has been a member of SEACS for over a decade.

How Singapore Acquired the Tang Shipwreck Treasures

Alvin Chia, President of the Southeast Asian Ceramic Society (2008-2011) and a key member of the team that brought this unique shipwreck collection to Singapore, spoke on how the Singapore Government acquired the coveted Tang Shipwreck treasures from the Belitung Shipwreck in 2005 against strong competition from museums in China and the Middle East.

The shipwreck was discovered in Indonesian waters in 1998 by a sea cucumber fisherman.  Between two monsoon seasons in 1998 and 1999, the treasures were recovered from the seabed of a coral reef. Inbetween the two seasons, some artifacts were stolen but were heroically recovered.  Many were found in pristine condition having being protected by sand for over a thousand years.

Alvin took us through the story behind the fund-raising effort that led to the generous donation that made the purchase possible. He also shared with us never-before seen pictures of the secret storeroom in an apple farm in New Zealand in which the ceramics were desalinated, and shared interesting details behind some of the key pieces (some of which have never been on public display). It was a fascinating journey and story behind the collection that is now on rotating display at Singpore’s Asian Civilisations Museum (with a smaller exhibition in Singapore’s Goodwood Park Hotel).

Date: Wednesday, 29 July 2020, 7:00 pm

Virtual Series #2: Ceramics in Scholarly Taste

Following the ‘wenren’, or literati vibe from the first Sharing Session, 36 members met again on 29 July via ZOOM to further explore ceramic objects of scholarly taste. We are delighted to see familiar faces of ceramic enthusiasts joining us from Singapore, Australia, and Europe.
 
SEACS Vice President, Kenson Kwok, opened the discussions and shared the basics of literati in historical context. Nine members presented 22 artefacts in total, including water droppers, brush holders, an oil lamp, bowls, porcelain flute, a sculpture, etc. Though the concept of ‘wenren’ is often associated with Chinese, it was fascinating to hear presenters’ unconventional and compelling interpretations of ‘scholarly taste’ and to picture objects from Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia to fit nicely in a scholar’s studio. 
 
We ended the talk with the understanding that scholars’ roles and engagements in art varied in different times in different societies, the forms and styles of ceramic wares they collected had also evolved. We will continue the dialogue on acquisition and collection of ceramics in the next sharing session.

Date: Wednesday, 15 July 2020, 7:00 pm

Navigating the Art Auction Ecosystem

A talk by Andrew Nai, a SEACS Life Member and Council Member since 2016, and experienced auction seller/buyer, explained how art auctions work, the various players and roles that each of them plays, and shared some tips on how to be successful yourself at art auctions.

Highlights from the event here…

Date: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 7:00 pm

Virtual Series #1: Ceramics in Scholarly Taste

A programme featuring a variety of ceramics that may (or may not) have captured a space in a traditional Chinese scholar’s studio. We’ll look at ceramics ranging from brush pots to ‘playthings’, each introduced by a member of the Society from his or her own collection, or from a favourite museum’s gallery. First in a series of ‘virtual sharing sessions’.

Highlights from the event here.
