The reason for an object to be created is to serve the daily necessities of human life.
The aesthetic appearance affects a large portion of the psychology. An object that delights people must have an element of “beauty.” The West and the East have their own particular definitions on aesthetics, and they are quite different. This paper attempts to explore how the East frames the image of beauty by looking into this topic from three different schools of thoughts: Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. The paper hopes ceramic practitioners and enthusiasts can stand on the shoulders of the giants to create new history and culture.
