On the morning of the 6th, the 17th China (Zibo) International Ceramics Expo and the 16th Shandong Advertising Festival opened at the Zibo International Convention and Exhibition Center. Among the dazzling array of porcelain at the scene, the "Glory and Prosperity" series composed of more than 100 pieces of tableware in the silicon yuan ceramic exhibition hall attracted the guests to stop and appreciate. The design of this set of tableware incorporated the theme of "Belt and Road" and drew the Silk Road elements among them.

"Porcelain was an important commodity of the ancient Silk Road and an important carrier of cultural and artistic exchange. Therefore, in the creative process, we systematically designed this set of themed tableware from the utensil type to the picture, and also sought to highlight the aesthetic style of different regions and nationalities in the use of elements and colors in a unified style."

According to designer Mao Xiaodong, the theme of this design is mainly to express the cultural and artistic aspects of "Belt and Road Initiative" through the carrier of ceramics, and Dunhuang art is an important embodiment of the integration and symbiosis of culture and art on the ancient Silk Road. The decoration of the picture is mainly gold and blue and green. The main picture design highlights "One Belt" and "One Road". The main design elements are the Silk Road on the Road and the Silk Road on the Sea. It consists of four patterns: sailing waves, camel dune, phoenix peony and nine-color deer auspicious clouds. The sea waves of the ship represent the sailing of the Silk Road on the sea, the camel team sand dunes represent the Silk Road on the road, the phoenix peony represents the traditional Chinese auspicious culture, and the nine-color deer auspicious clouds represent cultural exchange and integration. The whole represents the cultural exchange and integration embodied in the Silk Road, as well as the auspicious prosperity and prosperity that it conveys.

"The decoration of bowls, plates and other utensils is decorated with a large number of details according to the type of utensils, the contrast between complexity and simplicity, and the fusion of traditional elements and modern forms. The main design elements are Ruyi, Lianzhu and curly grass, which are composed of Ruyi flower, Lianzhu pattern and continuous curly grass pattern. Ruyi group flower represents good luck, Lianzhu pattern represents round and round, and continuous curly grass pattern represents luxuriant vitality. The overall pattern represents exuberance and good luck. In addition, some classic artistic elements are used as the finishing decoration, such as the" three-eared rabbit ", in which three rabbits share three ears through clever composition. As a cultural symbol, this classic image spread from the Silk Road to all parts of Europe and Asia and was widely used. The whole set of works strives to truly interpret the diversity, communion and intergrowth of Dunhuang art under the modern design concept." Mao Xiaodong told reporters.
