In class, I presented a book which focused on Chinese ceramics. While the decorative aspects of the works were identifiable and nearly singular to Chinese culture, it became evident that many other cultures took particular interest in the forms of these vessels. In particular, many other cultures took inspiration from Chinese bowls which feature a slight, outward turn near the mouth and lip of the vessel. Below are some examples.
