Legend in Jizhou Kiln —— Muye Cup

For a long time, Chinese people have been accustomed to using ceramic utensils. It developed from the embryonic form of production in the Qin and Han dynasties to the mature technology in the Ming and Qing dynasties. With a long history, the tradition of porcelain is closely related to our culture, which influence each other. The audience of porcelain has always been very wide: from princes and nobles to ordinary people. Aiming at satisfying the needs of the social strata, a large number of porcelain baking places were slowly appearing. In ancient times, 

the traffic was extremely inconvenient, which made fragile articles such as porcelain unable to be well protected and transported to other areas. Therefore, a large number of ceramic kiln mouths have been produced in different areas. Considering the differences in weather and climate, soil quality and water quality, cultural understanding and religion, they made all kinds of porcelain with different styles and advantages for the ancient Chinese ceramics industry. Among them, the pinnacle works produced by chance and coincidence have always been well known by everyone. There are “five famous kilns”: Ru, Guan, Ge, Jun and Ding. There are also eight kiln systems: Ru Kiln, Yaozhou Kiln, Guan Kiln, Ding Kiln, Cizhou Kiln, Jun Kiln, Jingdezhen Kiln and Ge Kiln. These are all made by ancestors to meet the needs of life. As a result, some are made beautifully and some are simple. This is not because the craftsman’s skills or intentions are not enough, but to meet the needs of diverse users. Although the porcelain of Jizhou Kiln is not as famous as the 

porcelain produced by Jianzhan, who also produced black glazed porcelain, the leaf pattern cup produced by Jizhou Kiln is unique in the firing process and incomparable in aesthetics. Muye cup of Jizhou kiln is similar to the porcelain produced by other kilns
