The ancient kiln sites of Qudougong and the Yueji Kiln
Oct 2017 • Friends
Qudougong is a site of 17 kiln chambers preserved from the Song and Yuan dynasties. When the site was excavated in 1976, it revealed over 6000 porcelain wares, shards, and 899 porcelain-making tools--all of which have proven invaluable in studying the evolution of kiln forms and firing techniques. The most visited is inside a public schoolyard accessible when the school is open weekdays although the actual excavation site is inside a wooden roofed-over shed that is generally locked. It is still strewn with shards, broken saggers and other kiln furniture. Very good signage in English inside the shed and some outdoor posters are also in English highlighting the importance of the site in the production of 'dehua' or blanc-de-chine ceramics.
