Two Bowls and a Plate. The Yaozhou kilns in Shaanxi Province produced a wide variety of ceramics, but they were especially famed for their green-glazed stoneware. The body was largely coated with an olive-green glaze, while the base was only lightly brushed. Variations in thickness and colour tones were achieved by incising the surface.
