DESCRIPTION: Ru Yao is the first of the five famous kilns. Historically, it has been used as articles or collections for the royalty or nobility. Due to various invasions from outsiders during the Song Dynasty, the primary recipe of the Ru Yao became forever lost, thus halting all Ru Yao production until 1952. In 1952, Premier Zhou Enlai instructed "to develop Chinese cultural heritage and restore Ru Yao production". After hundreds of experiments and studies, the first batch of bean-green glaze crafts were fired in 1958. In August 1983, the Ru Yao sky-blue glaze was appraised by experts, and had finally reached and surpassed the level of quality of Ru Yao during the Song Dynasty. Today, the first Chinese company to complete the continuation of Ru Yao's top technology is Bo Cai Ru Yao.
MATERIAL: The axis center of the pink-green axis contains small bubbles and unfused quartz grains, which make the light entering the axis center scatter intensely, thus forming an artistic effect completely different from that of ordinary glass glaze. This is also the root of what many netizens call "pink-blue glaze" or "matte glaze".
DIFFICULTY: Due to the complexity of the production process, the overall yield per kiln is only 17%.
DIMENSIONS: 4.5cm (top diameter) x 21cm (height) x 5.8cm (bottom diameter)
