From the end of primitive times of China, the ceramic craft industry had been attached importance by the ruling class. By the time of Yongzheng and Qianlong Period of Qing Dynasty (A.D. 1722-1795), the Imperial Kiln in Jingdezhen reached the peak of development under the supervisor Tang Ying. In the meanwhile, the quality and quantity of the ceramic products made by Imperial Kiln of China had reached a fairly high level. For this reason, the Imperial Kiln of China at that time was called Tang Kiln in memory of Tang Ying. Through the analysis of management aspects of personnel, production and delivery, this research concluded a result that Tang Ying’s management liberated the productive forces, improved the production relations, optimized the mode of production, and promoted the marketization of operation as well.
