Chinese ceramics are classified into three types of ware, depending on the type of clay. Earthenware ceramics are made of a reddish-colored clay that is low fired at about 800 degrees Celsius. Stoneware ceramics generally have either dark gray or brown bodies and are fired at higher temperatures (1,200-1,280 degrees Celsius). Porcelain ceramics, with white, translucent bodies, are fabricated from kaolin clay and petuntse (called Chinastone), and are fired at temperatures exceeding 1,280 degrees Celsius. Porcelain is one of China's artistic contributions to the world, first appearing in the 12th century-about 600 years before the clay was discovered in Europe.
