——Exhibition Overview——

III. Kiln of Thousands of Years


Jizhou kiln was as important as the famed Jingdezhen kiln in the Jiangxi region during the Song and Yuan dynasties (from the 10th to the 14th centuries), and was unparalleled at the time for its black glazed porcelain. Its production method is characterized by a pursuit for naturalness, with an integration of the techniques of other kilns and the spirit of Buddhism and Confucianism, while also learning skills from various craftsmen throughout the country. Using the advantage of Gan River, the products of the kiln could be shipped for sale across the country, with their reputation even spreading overseas.


The unique natural resources, profound cultural accumulation and intelligence of Luling people combined to create the great Jizhou kiln. Its innovative ability was unparalleled among various folk kilns, leaving an indelible mark on Chinese porcelain history.
