This gallery includes pottery from several kilns producing renown pottery such as:
a) Ding Ware (定瓷), Ting ware (Chinese: 定瓷; pinyin: Dìngcí) were Chinese ceramics, mostly porcelain, produced in the prefecture of Dingzhou in Hebei in northern China. The main kilns were at Jiancicun or Jianci in Quyang County. They were produced between the Tang and Yuan dynasties of imperial China, though their finest period was in the 11th century, under the Northern Song. The kilns "were in almost constant operation from the early eighth until the mid-fourteenth century." The most characteristic wares are thin porcelains with a white or greyish body and a nearly transparent white-tinted glaze.
b) Guan Ware (官窯), or Kuan ware were one of the Five Famous Kilns of Song Dynasty China, making high-status stonewares, whose surface decoration relied heavily on crackled glaze, randomly crazed by a network of crack lines in the glaze. Guan means "official" in Chinese and Guan Ware was, most unusually for Chinese ceramics of the period, the result of an imperial initiative resulting from the loss of access to northern kilns such as those making Ru ware and Jun ware after the invasion of the north.
c) Yaozhou Ware (Chinese耀州窯pinyinYàozhōu yáo) were a type of celadon or greenware in Chinese pottery, which was at its height during the Northern Song Dynasty. It is the largest and typically the best of the wares in the group of Northern Celadon wares. It is especially famous for the rich effects achieved by decoration in shallow carving under a green celadon glaze which sinks into the depressions of the carving giving contrasts of light and dark shades.
d) Jizhou Ware or Chi-chou ware (Chinese吉州窯pinyinJízhōu yáo) were Chinese pottery from Jiangxi province in southern China; the Jizhou kilns made a number of different types of wares over the five centuries of production. The best known wares are simple shapes in stoneware, with a strong emphasis on subtle effects in the dark glazes, comparable to Jian ware, but often combined with other decorative effects. In the Song dynasty they achieved a high prestige, especially among Buddhist monks and in relation to tea-drinking. The wares often use leaves or paper cutouts to create resist patterns in the glaze, by leaving parts of the body untouched.
e) Jingdezhen Ware (景德镇陶瓷) is Chinese porcelain produced in or near Jingdezhen in southern China. Jingdezhen may have produced pottery as early as the sixth century CE, though it is named after the reign name of Emperor Zhenzong of the Song Dynasty (宋朝) (960–1279), in whose reign it became a major kiln site, around 1004. By the 14th century it had become the largest centre of production of Chinese porcelain.
