1. The Hubei AreaThe Hubei area witnessed the appearance of proto-porcelains during the Shang and Zhou eras, the classical evolution and peak of greenwares during Six Dynasctics through Sui and Tang eras; the production of exquisite bluish-white porcelains of the Song dynastic periods; and the gradual thriving of porcelains with colorful decorations during the Yuan, Ming and Qing periods. The development of porcelains is also well represented by the expansion of local kilns, some of which are large in scale and continued to fire for thousands of years. Contact and interchange with outside Hubei through trade for enfeoffments are represented in the archaeological finds from Yue kilns, Changsha kilns, Ding kilns, Jun kilns, Longquan kilns, Yaozhou kilns, Dengdeng kilns, Cizhou kilns, Jizhou kilns, Jingdezhen kilns, Jian kilns, Dehua kilns, and so forth. All these comprise the exquisite collections of the museums in Hubeim and only a very small part of these ceramics are published in the present catalogue.
2. The Hunan Area
Ceramic manufacture in Hunan has a long and multi-faceted history. The Neolithic site of Yuchanyan in Dao-xian county is where the earlist remains of rice cultivation were discovered, dating as early as 10,000 years ago, and where the earlist pottery sherds are documented. Ceramic production evolved and advanced with distinctive aesthetics and ceramic types from Shang through Warring States periods. Particularly distinctive are lacquer painted pottery, proto-porcelain, green-glazed pottery, pottery painted with tinfoil (xitutao), and pottery painted with unfaired pigments.
