Jian Zhan pottery originates from Fujian Province, and was at the peak of its popularity in the Song Dynasty. The characteristic of this type of pottery is the special glaze, which is typically dark, and has special effects known as “hare’s fur” or “oil spot” which come about as excess iron in the glaze is forced out during firing.
