Chinese porcelain is a mix of white clay with powdered stone. Under intense heat, silica in the stone melted into glass which bonded with the clay to create glassy ceramics. Europeans substituted powdered glass, instead of powered stone and added calcined bone to their clay formula enabling them to produce porcelain with lower temperature kilns. When decorated by fine Dutch artists, western porcelain competed well with Chinese porcelain, although the Dutch often painted oriental style, making it appear to be authentic Chinese porcelain.
