Ru porcelain is one of top five porcelains in China (Ru, Guan, Jun, Ge and Ding porcelains) which gets its name as it is made in Ruzhou, Henan Province. Ru porcelain enjoys a good reputation of “paramount Ru kiln” in China’s porcelain history.
In the late northern Song Dynasty, ru kiln was monopolized by the monarchy to produce porcelain for the royal court, that is, “Ru Guan porcelain” or “Ru porcelain” for short. When Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty succeeded to the throne, he replaced Ru porcelain with Jun porcelain. And in the first year of Daguan, Empror Huizong replaced Jun porcelain with Ru porcelain again, which, however, couldn’t reach the point in the Confucius temple period.
Ru guan porcelain is defined by exquisite body and rarefied techniques. It is glazed with precious agate, showing unique color and luster. Glazing color changes as light changes, demonstrating the gentle and primitive features; glaze surface is smooth and fine like beautiful jade; looking at the surface, it seems like tiny pieces in the shape of cicada’s wings and there are sparse bubbles under the glaze as flickering and twinkling as stars at down. If we observe the juncture of porcelain body and glaze against the light, we can find slight blush, reflecting its eyeable appearance.
Ru porcelain can be divided into several types based on glazing color: sky blue glaze, azure glaze, bluish white glaze, pea green glaze and egg white glaze.
How Ru Kiln China was Made
Ru kiln porcelain has a beautiful smooth vitreous glaze that covers the entire piece including the rims of the mouth and feet. This is because the Ru kiln pieces were supported by thin pieces, called studs that left three or five tiny indentations, about the size of sesame seeds, on the base of the porcelain piece. The studs allowed the glaze to cove the entire vessel.
The glasslike finish of Ru kiln pieces range from a celadon green with a tinge of sapphire blue to sky blue. The pieces generally have fine, irregular crackles all over the surface, called crab claw veins by the Chinese.
