Abstract: Collector’s works are demanded during a prosperous age while gold is needed over troubled times. Collector’s ceramics include both contemporaries and ancients. Because of the difficulty in distinguishing between the real and the unreal, ancient forgeries are so common that collectors refrain from investing in ancient pieces. However, with the help of those clear-sighted, the market demand for contemporary collector’s ceramics is on the rise. The prices for contemporaries spiral up dramatically because the increasing demand exceeds supply. In order to make more profit from their identity, some artists begin to mass produce poor quality works; others even hire ghost artists or subcontract their work to others. This paper is to look upon the ghost authorship of collector’s ceramics from the view of law in order to legalize the art ceramic market in Jingdezhen.
