The process of how Cizhou wares were made during China’s Song and Yuan dynasties is revealed as visitors create their own vessel using the Web site’s tools.
Visitors learn each step of the process of creating a Cizhou vessel like those in the museum’s collection as they throw the clay then color, paint, glaze, and fire it. Intermixed with video footage of artisans demonstrating techniques, the extensive 3-D visualizations in the activities let visitors make their own creative decisions to particularize their vessel throughout each stage. By balancing learning with creativity, this rich-media module engages diverse learning styles and helps make objects in the collection portals of discovery.
