Auction Result
BI
Openmouthed, oblique and straight belly, circle foot. This style of bowl could often been seen in Song dynasty. It is commonly known as “wide-brimmed rain hat bowl”. Its body is white and full of rich, and decorated naturally. Outer was applied black glaze, while inter was applied butter glaze. The surface of glaze is full of silver-gray metallic dots, named as “droplets“ in the past. This formation is mainly because of the recovery of the crystallization of iron in the form of magnetite on the glaze surface. The glaze layer of the northern kiln is relatively thin, thus the number of drops of enamel on glaze surface is relatively large. And its size is also relatively small, and its production is limited to a few kin and is in small amount. The chemical composition of black glaze and butter glaze is similar; its characters are high iron, high calcium, and high magnesium. Ding kiln black glaze porcelain is little. It is rare that black glaze and butter glaze applied on the same container like work. Its range of sintering temperature is very narrow, only 10-20℃ differences, and it must be placed in the most appropriate position when loading the kiln firing, and must strictly control the temperature and heating rate. This work may be made by occasional phenomenon in the firing process, and had glaze in blending multiple colors. It is rare and precious beyond doubt.
