Ru porcelain is an important component of China's ceramic culture. Over the past few years, Ruzhou has held various events including the 1st China (International) Ru Porcelain Culture Festival, Firing Skill Contest on China's Porcelains, Summit on the Inheritance and Development of China's Porcelains and the Ru Porcelain into Taiwan. Ruzhou won the honor of China's Famous Kiln and the Home of Top Porcelain this year. All of this helped spread the culture of Ru's porcelain and improved the status of contemporary Ruzhou kilns.
Ruzhou's head of party publicity department Zhao Hongli points out that the establishment of the ceramics association is the first in Ruzhou's ceramic industry. Ruzhou will try its best to integrate the traditional crafts and fashion elements while developing a conservation-oriented and technology-based ceramic industry, so as to promote the sustainable expansion of the ceramic industry.
