Fun Fact

This vessel was made during the Tang Dynasty, a golden age of culture.

The splashes of color on the dark glaze were achieved by sprinkling the wood ash on the black-brown glaze before firing. This local ware may be considered a predecessor of Jun ware, which was produced in the same region and was sometimes decorated by splashing.
