Yaozhou Vessel
BATEA 35

Why this is a
Masterpiece

This vessel is simply potted and decorated, yet it makes such a strong visual impact. By carefully dipping and angling the unfired pot into the brown slip, the potter has managed to create a minimal, yet effective, design which echoes the shape of the vessel. No other vessel with such a design is known to have been published.

History of the Object
This piece was purchased in Hong Kong by Brian McElney, the Founder of the Museum of East Asian Art.
