The Society for Chinese Ceramics Studies presents the significant roles of utilitarian art in the Song (960-1279) and Yuan (1279-1368) dynasties. The Song Dynasty witnessed a vibrant economy and a flowering of the arts, and major kilns were active in many regions, which continued almost seamlessly into the Yuan Dynasty. Visitors can explore the rich history and artistry of wares from the kilns of Ding, Jun, Yaozhou, Longquan, Qingbai, Cizhou, Jian, Jizhou, among others.
