Why this is a
Masterpiece

This piece was decorated by coating the unfired body with white slip (a clay slurry) and then carving into it to reveal the darker background underneath. The potting and execution of the design of this pot is exceptional. The carving style is crisp and unusually deep. This is one of the finest examples of this type of ware.

History of the Object
The Cizhou kilns are spread throughout the northern Chinese provinces of Hebei, Henan, and Shaanxi. Slip decorated and carved stoneware started to be produced in these regions from the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127).
