Porcelain made to achieve this type of crackled glaze first appeared in the Song Dynasty, coming from the Ge Kiln in Zhejiang Province. The historic Ge Kiln is lost to time, but its style continues on.
The Ge Kiln style is characterized by its crackled visual texture, known as kai pian (卡片), lit. “open piece.” Although cracks stylize the look of the set, the surface of the glaze is smooth to the touch and uniform throughout the inside and outside of the pieces. Traditional Ge Kiln ceramics were made in a number of colors. This particular set’s color is known as “wormwood green.”
