Fellowship Project

Ms. Xiong Ying-fei spent six months at the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington D.C., U.S.A., where she conducted research on the chemical composition and technical characteristics of colorants in iron and copper glazes on ancient Chinese ceramics. The results were combined with the existing data at the Shanghai Museum to improve the ancient ceramics research database. During the fellowship, Ms. Xiong conducted tests on 52 porcelain pieces representative of important periods in China. By using different test methods and comparing them with standard samples, the chemical composition of glazes was accurately quantified. Finally, through classifying and analysing the data, Ms. Xiong preliminarily discussed the characteristics of glazes on iron and copper colored enamel, features of the glazing process and the main factors affecting glaze colors.


Ms. Yingfei Xiong currently serves as Deputy Director and Curator of the Conservation Center at the Shanghai Museum. She is also the Deputy Chairman and Secretary-general of a committee responsible for testing and analysing cultural relics at the China Association for Conservation Technology of Cultural Heritage.
