  • Abstract The ceramic industry of Jingdezhen in China can be traced back to the Han Dynasty. Up to the Ming and Qing dynasties, it has become a mature and professionally divided work site handicraft model. Because it has the heritage of the official kiln culture, its status has never changed even though dynasties have changed; it has always been emphasized and supported by the government. However, the competitiveness of Jingdezhen ceramic industry today is far below that of the other ceramic industry community areas in China. In order to clarify the nature of problems of the industry, this study uses the concept and theory of “entrepreneurship” as well as establishment of the analytical framework to seek the historical context of Jingdezhen ceramic industry development from tradition to the modern. This study also compares it to the 18th Century rise of the English ceramic industry “The Potteries.” This study finds that development of the Jingdezhen ceramic industry has not been like ‘The Potteries” ceramic industry of England because the social environment and industrial economic system is not conducive to the appearance of entrepreneurs, who can use entrepreneurship to optimize the internal and external conditions of the industry to create success. Such research results can not only help readers understand the current industrial situation in Jingdezhen, but can also help the government or corporate units to reevaluate the appropriateness of their developmental strategies.
