In order to improve cultural and artistic value, the study investigates the significance of incorporating Chinese festivals into digital ceramic design. The integration of Chinese festivals into digital ceramics is a way to celebrate and preserve traditional Chinese culture while communicating historical and cultural significance, according to a thematic analysis. This combination provides a forum for intercultural communication and creativity. Additionally, by enhancing artistic and cultural elements, combining Chinese festivals with digital ceramic product designs has synergistic value. With ceramics, this method allows for creative expression, storytelling, and cultural heritage preservation. Tradition and technology work together to create distinctive, eye-catching digital ceramic works that encapsulate the spirit of Chinese festivals while also preserving and advancing cultural traditions. Essentially, the study highlights how Chinese festivals can be incorporated into digital ceramic design. It demonstrates how this integration fosters creativity and cultural preservation by bridging the gap between tradition and technology. Similar to how symbols are essential to ceramic design, fusing traditional and modern aesthetics makes ceramic products more appealing and allows for deeper cultural significance. In order to bridge the gaps in Chinese ceramic design and ultimately advance Chinese culture and ceramics through innovative design, the study emphasises the necessity of semiotic approaches and thematic holiday-themed ceramic designs. This study advances the knowledge of how traditional culture can enhance modern ceramic design, creating a bond with consumers and preserving the health of China's ceramics sector.
