New Ceramics from Qing Art in Portico Gallery

One of the best things about going out to see our artists in Beijing, apart from the fantastic food that I always eat too much off, is seeing the variety and creativity they produce in their work. Never do they cease to amaze me with their outstanding designs and the pains they go into detail with. Our latest visit was no exception.

A selection of Li’s work now showing in Portico Gallery Sevenoaks

And that is why it is no surprise that other galleries and shops are asking to stock some of our designers. Having worked previously with the wonderful Portico Gallery in Sevenoaks, Kent before, we were delighted that they asked to sell more of Li’s new ceramics from Qing Art. Impressed with the quality of the pieces and the innovative design they fit very well into modern, contemporary spaces.

 
Li’s ceramic bowls in his new Bird and Blossom range show off his hand made style beautifully depicting his signature kingfisher and lotus seed pod pattern. Available in blue, green and sage there are stools, bowls and more to choose from. And of course still available online and in our Margate showroom

Qing Art’s Showroom

 

Hand thrown ceramic urns with lids by Li, in pale grey and slate blue.

Qing Art’s showroom is located in the beautiful Georgian Old Town of Margate. A stones throw from the new Turner Contemporary Gallery, this little quarter hosts a vibrant area full of galleries, independent shops and cafes. A perfect place to showcase our designers and artists, with their hand made work and limited edition pieces.

Where the website is the perfect place to promote the gorgeous furniture from Yue, lighting from Chen and soft furnishings from De Xian, here in the showroom we can also offer a better range of smaller items. Tian, our jewellery designer’s work is exquisite, with her stone, wood and hand blown glass collection of beads and necklaces. Li’s ceramics too, with a variety of vases and ceramic stools for the garden. However, not everything Li does is small and these stunning urns with lids are just an example of what treasures wait for you if you have a chance to pop in.

All this and more, make a day of it, visit the gallery, pop in to a great cafe and have a coffee, then make your way to us and let us show you the bits you can’t always get to see online!

Margate welcomes the Queen

Remembrance Day, was indeed a special day in Margate as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip came to honour ex-servicemen and view the regeneration in Margate Old Town. Anne-Marie Nixey, Director of Qing Art was delighted to be chosen to meet Her Majesty as one of the people that had helped put Margate Old Town on the map and work with others to bring this heritage area to its current glory.

After a short visit to a couple of the shops the Royal Party then visited the newly opened Turner Contemporary Gallery and spoke to the team there that have made a fantastic contribution to the town.
