Abstract

In studies of Chinese ceramics of designated periods, it is generally assumed that the forms and decoration produced were universal, that is, they were made by most kilns in most types of wares. In fact, as this study of Northern Sung ceramics will dem-onstrate, there are distinct regional differences in forms and decoration with some types only produced at a single kiln site. This paper will consider some of these regional forms and decoration by examining the contexts for their production, and the impact of technology, consumers and markets.
