 Chalre Collection

 

The focus of The Chalre Collection is Chinese and Asian Tradeware Ceramics -- in other words, Ceramics that were traded throughout Asia. Tradeware Ceramics (Porcelain, Stoneware and Earthenware) tell the story of how the peoples of Asia forged social and commercial ties with each other during ancient times. 

 

Of the many thousands of traded items over the centuries,  Ceramics is the only one durable enough to have survived into modern times to give us a record of Asia's past.

 

The Ceramic Art collection of Chalre Associates came about through the efforts of the firm's principals, Rebecca Bustamante and Richard Mills.  It is their intention that a significant portion of The Chalre Collection become property of a museum foundation or other public body in the future. 

 

In creating the collection, major recognition must be given to Jose (Joe) Yusef Makmak for his considerable support and friendship.  Our thoughts are with Joe, formerly a prominent ceramic antiquities dealer in Philippines, who passed away in 2008.

Ceramic Art is 

Enduring Luxury

 

Ceramics are one of the world's oldest forms of cultural technology and can be traced back more than 11,000 years to Asia and the Middle East.  The remarkable durability of fired clay has enabled pottery to become perhaps the most valuable and available records of human development.  

 

Ceramics are also one of the most valued forms of cultural and artistic expression.  In cultures throughout the world, pottery has been employed at all social levels for the most important events in developed and developing societies -- from pious religious ceremonies to more mundane but rather important activities like eating and drinking.    

 

 

The Spice Trade

 

The Spice Trade and Ceramics developed together Oriental Ceramics of Asia - Pottery & Porcelain of ChinaTrade within Southeast Asia has existed since the Han dynasty (25BC - 220AD).  It developed more during the dynasties of the Sui (581 - 618) and Tang (618 - 907).  Southeast Asian trade became more of a focus during the extravagant Sung dynasty (960 - 1279) due to advancements in maritime technology and marauding invasions from north China that disrupted trade with central Asia.

 

Manufactured goods such as silk and cotton textiles, iron implements, Porcelain and cash coins from China were exchanged for mainly native products of tropical countries.  These Southeast Asian products included plant-based goods (such as spices, herbal medicines and hardwoods), exotic rarities (like pearls, precious stones, colourful bird feathers and animal tusks) and raw materials (sulfur, animal hides, copper, tin and raw cotton).  

 

Map of Asian Spice Trade - Oriental Ceramics of Asia - Pottery & Porcelain of ChinaOf thousands of products traded, Ceramics reigns supreme today because of its remarkable ability to preserve itself in mint condition even after being submerged in the sea or buried in the soil for hundreds of years. 

 

Ceramics tell the story of how the peoples of Asia forged social and commercial ties with each other over the past 1,000 years.
