Glazed stoneware, Huangdao ware
Overall: 27 x 20.3 cm (10 5/8 x 8 in.)
Gift of Donna and James Reid 2017.17
This vessel was made during the Tang Dynasty, a golden age of culture.
The splashes of color on the dark glaze were achieved by sprinkling the wood ash on the black-brown glaze before firing. This local ware may be considered a predecessor of Jun ware, which was produced in the same region and was sometimes decorated by splashing.
