Bowl with carved decoration
The makers of this bowl deeply carved a lily flower into the leather-hard clay and then dipped the bowl into liquid glaze. This glaze pooled in the grooves. Merchants traded Yaozhou wares widely. In the Song dynasty, the best kilns were located at Huangpuzhen, near modern Tongchuan city, which then was under the jurisdiction Yaozhou, hence their name.
