Small Bowl: Gallery Label - Current


Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Some of the earliest Ch'ing-pai ware was simply decorated with freely executed incisions outlining the motif, usually floral, set off with incised comb patterns. Similar use of comb striations can be found in other Sung ceramics including Yao-chou celadon and Tz'u-chou wares. Delicately potted, lightly incised, and subtlety glazed, this small bowl reflects the aesthetic refinement Ch'ing-pai could achieve within what was essentially a mass manufactured utilitarian ware with broad public appeal.
