Why this is a
Masterpiece

The great artistic potential of copper-red Lang-yao glaze is exemplified by a bowl shaped as a six-petal flower. Its dark-red colour is diversified with fine sapphire-purple and grey-green streaks which become denser as they descend toward the bottom of the dish to create an asymmetrical dark-brown pattern.

History of the Object
Under the Qing Dynasty (1644–1912), Chinese ceramics received a whole range of coloured glazes, obtained from such metals as iron, copper, cobalt, antimony, gold, manganese, chrome, or bismuth. Glazes held in special esteem were copper-red Lang-yao and copper-pink whose colour was that of a peach flower. Popular glaze colours included, for example, coral red obtained from iron oxide, mirror black and imperial yellow.
