Why this is a
Masterpiece

Today only around a hundred known Ru Yao artefacts remain and two of these are in the Röhsska Museum collections – two exquisite masterpieces in the museum's collection of Oriental ceramics. Per Dahlström, Curator, Röhsska Museum

History of the Object
Qingliangsi was part of Ruzhou prefecture hence the name Ru. Until the Song court fled south in 1127, Ru articles were produced here that were only delivered to the Emperor’s court in Kaifeng. This bowl is typical of the exquisite Ru Yao stoneware, where a thick, shimmering, undecorated bluish-green glaze with beautiful, irregular crackling contrasts with the characteristically simple, unpretentious yet elegant design that plays the aesthetic leading role. Ceramics from the Song Dynasty have long been seen as particularly exclusive. Of the works from the famous Song period kilns, Ru Yao are the most renowned, the rarest and are seen by many far and wide to be the best.
