Chinese ceramics is a form of fine art developed since the dynastic periods. China has always been richly endowed with the raw materials needed for making ceramics. The first types were made about 11,000 years ago, during the Palaeolithic era. Chinese Ceramics range from construction materials such as bricks and tiles to hand-built pottery vessels fired in bonfires or kilns to the sophisticated porcelain wares made for the imperial court.
Chinese New Year --Day 3: Red Mouth/Red Dog day (赤口): staying at home
The third day of the Chinese new year is a "red mouth" day (赤口). It is also called the "Chigou's Day" (赤狗日) which literally means "Red Dog". Red Dog is the "God of Blazing Wrath" (熛怒之神) who brings bad luck . Thus it is believed it is an unlucky day to go visiting relatives or friends and everyone should stay at home. Because “red mouth” will cause quarrels and people can lose temper easily and have arguments and fights.
Staying at home on the third say can avoid quarrels. To prevent disputes and quarrels for the whole year, placing red/pink/purple figurines or decorations at the NORTHWEST of the home can lessen the adverse influence of the Conflict star (Number 3 Flying star).
To increase interpersonal relationship can promote success and reduce quarrels. To place fresh colorful flowers (in RED color vase) at SOUTHEAST of the home can promote the positive chi of the Victory star (Number 1 Flying star)
