Chinese Ceramics: 10th-13th Century

Chinese Ceramics: 10th-13th Century

November 5, 2011 – Indefinitely

Museum: Freer Gallery of Art

Location: Gallery 15

Potters in both north and south China perfected the skills needed to control and modulate ceramic glazes—in shades of white, green, blue, brown, and black—during the Song dynasty (960–1279). In some modes, the glaze complemented carved or incised decoration; in others, its purity of color became a focal point on its own. Two dozen Chinese ceramics from the Freer collection highlight these glazes and the skills of Song dynasty artisans.
