晓芳窑是台湾名窑,以仿古瓷闻名,其窑主蔡晓芳先生从事仿古瓷器的烧制工作已逾30年,举凡中国历代各种名窑瓷器,晓芳窑都曾仿制过。 不过,晓芳窑的作品并非单纯追求乱真,而是在仿制的过程中,充分利用现代的烧制设备和技术,尝试超越古瓷的艺术之美。


除此之外,晓芳窑所仿的元明清代的青花瓷、仿清代的粉彩瓷,以及单色釉瓷等,也都是颇具特色的上乘之作。 晓芳窑仿汝瓷的成功秘诀在于其独特的釉色秘方和烧制工艺,而设在北投的窑厂是从不轻易让外人进入的。

走进蔡晓芳位于北投的两层瓷器展室,仿佛进入了记载着中国传统古陶瓷历史的博物馆,从宋代的汝、官、哥、定、钧、龙泉,到元明清代的青花、釉里红、五彩、斗彩、粉彩等,一应俱全。 另外,蔡晓芳先生与台北故宫博物馆的深厚渊源也是其成功的原因,当年蔡晓芳有幸得到台北故宫高层的赏识,特准他近距离观摩馆藏瓷器,并为台北故宫仿制过不少经典名瓷,如台北故宫珍藏的汝窑无纹水仙盆、温碗等,当年曾代替真品到海外参展,随即成为藏家争相收藏之物。
