The Ru kiln was foremost among the five great kiln centers of the Song dynasty, and the fame of its wares spread through the world together with Guan, Ge, Ding, and Jun wares. During the Tang and Song Dynasties, it became popular to refer to porcelain wares by the name of the Region or Zhou where their respective kilns were located. Thus we speak of “Ru ware” because during the Northern Song the kiln was located in Ruzhou, i.e., Ru Region. The Ru kiln site, which was discovered in 1950 by Chen Wanli, is located in Qingliangsi Village, Daying Township, 25 km west of the county seat of Baofeng County, Henan. Confirmation that this was indeed the remains of the Ru kiln came in 1987, during the first excavation of the site. In 2000, during the sixth excavation, the central porcelain-firing area was found. Ru porcelain is famed for the thinness and purity of its clay bodies, the fine workmanship in shaping, and the pure sky-blue color of its glaze. The latter was praised in the classic phrase, “like the blue of the sky in a clearing amongst the clouds after rain.” The glaze surface always featured very fine, complex crackelure that suggested fish scales or the fine cracks in ice. Moreover, an exquisite level of workmanship went into the vessels’ making. The glaze covered the whole surface, including the feet, and the support pins on which they were fired were as fine as sesame grains. Thus, from Song times to the present, they were widely praised and admired. During the Qing dynasty, the Qianlong emperor once had 183 of his poems inscribed on 16 of his most prized porcelains, and of these, 15 were Ru ware. This is a reflection of the esteem that Ru ware enjoyed among emperors and scholar-officials during the Ming and Qing Dynasties.
