Tang Jia Li - Revolutionized China's Nude Art Scene

Tang Jia Li (simplified Chinese: 汤加丽; traditional Chinese: 湯加麗; pinyin: Tāng Jiālì) (born July 13, 1976 in Hefei, Anhui) is a Chinese dancer and model who became a celebrity and household name in the People's Republic of China in 2003 by being the first woman to sell books of nude artistic photographs of herself since the lifting of many of the previous restrictions on distribution and sale of such photographs.

As of 2005, her name (in Chinese characters) is one of the top searches in Chinese search engines.

Ceramics Painting Exposition

To say the 8th China International Ceramics Expo was fun would be doing injustice. Who would ever imagine that ceramics could be this fun? China is now a whole new world and a very different place from what we may have expected.

Explicit and exhibitionist activities in China are now officially sanctioned by the State. And exhibitionism in the Chinese mainland is on the rise with some people even having sex in the open, and bloggers daringly detailing their activities with hundreds of men, in their blogs.

The eighth International Ceramics Exposition and World Ceramics Purchasing Fair held in Zibo, Shandong province, on September 16-20, 2008 had everything. Including a lot of hairy bush, nice asses and pinkish tits on display. Not to mention the latest ceramic designs by 423 ceramics artists from seven provinces. Now, the only thing is to try figure out what nude chicks have to do with ceramics. It won't be too difficult though. This might take awhile but I think I like where China is heading.

The four-day China International Ceramics Exposition and World Ceramics Purchasing Fair kicked off in Zibo, east China's Shandong province. The show attract about 40,000 participants from over 30 countries and regions.

More than 1,000 ceramics enterprises displayed their latest porcelain and pottery products and also new technologies, at this 160,000-sq-m exhibition.

"The exposition is a pageant in ceramics circles that promotes exchanges between China and the world and fosters the industry's development in Zibo," said the city's mayor Zhou Qingli. Nothing was mentioned about the human porcelain though.

Sponsored by China Federation of Industrial Economics and China Ceramic Industry Association, the exposition displays a wide range of products including industrial ceramics, ceramics for daily use, artistic work and ceramics used inside buildings.
