Ceramics database launched to help regulate art market

 An online database listing detailed information of Chinese ceramic art works was launched on Monday in Jingdezhen City, east China's Jiangxi Province.

Jointly built by Chinese art works authentication recording center under the Copyright Society of China and Jiangxi entry-exit inspection and quarantine bureau, the database has collected such information as the microscopic structure, chemical constitution, physical performance, and three-dimensional pictures of different ceramic crafts.

Art collectors and appraisers can log on the database's website for reference when trying to identify the authenticity of a ceramic work.

The database is expected to help regulate the trading market of ceramic crafts, and protect the intellectual property of ceramic art works.

So far, the database has 90 items. Developers of the database are striving to expand the offerings by inviting more ceramists and collectors to have the information of their art works collected.
