A handmade fine art reproduction of a vase from Song Dynasty (960-1279) by Guan Kiln/Guan ware
Guan ware or Kuan ware (Chinese: 官窯) is one of the Five Famous Kilns of Song Dynasty China, making high-status stonewares, whose surface decoration relied heavily on the crackled glaze, randomly crazed by a network of crack lines in the glaze. Guan ware used in the literally translated sense to cover any “official” wares ordered by the Imperial court.
The crackle arises during cooling, when the coefficient of expansion differs between the glaze and the body.There are several layers of glaze, and the glaze is often thicker than the clay body. The crackle does not occur through all layers.
