Description

Label:

Ceramic objects made in China during the Song dynasty (960–1279)—among the most influential in the development of the art of ceramics and among the most treasured in the world—are notable for their simple and elegant shapes, their lively decoration, and their lush glazes. Song ceramics have been categorized into wares many of which take the names of their areas of production.

Jizhou, historically known as Yonghe, is located in southeastern China. Around the 900s, the manufacture of Jizhou ceramics began to play an important role in the history of provincial kilns. In contrast to more refined ceramics such as ru and guan wares, which are known to have been used at the Song court and among aristocrats, Jizhou wares were used by the general populace from day to day, and the inventiveness and visual delight of these wares won them a large admiring public.
