Subject:Comments and Help Towards Re-Firing A Northern Song Blackware Funeray Jar
Posted By: George Ingraham Wed, Mar 06, 2019 IP: 2601:602:cc00:27c8:9
I am reaching out for help to fire this Song Dynasty ( 960 - 1279 AD ) ceramic / stoneware Chinese funerary jar.
For what ever reason the kiln attendant did not leave this in long enough to melt the glaze.
Would like to re-fire this at 1250 to 1300 °C in oxidizing to neutral atmosphere to bring this glaze to its full glossy luster.
I am running into opposition from local modern kiln owners for fear of damaging their kiln.
If possible I am willing to send this to a traditional Chinese kilns like those of Jingdezhen, or Hebei if they would be willing to help.
I would greatly appreciate any help, guidance and opinions …
I can only post three pictures within this post, but can share more closeups if needed..
