Cizhou ware[1] or Tz'u-chou ware[2] (Chinese: 磁州窯; pinyin: Cízhōu yáo; Wade–Giles: Tz'u-chou yao) is a type of Chinese ceramics. It was developed during the Northern Song period in the 11-12th century. It was named for Cizhou, a prefecture now called Ci County in Handan in southern Hebei, known for its kilns.[1] Cizhou ware consisted in a transparent glaze applied on a white slipped-body, but was later followed by numerous variations.[1][3]
