What is Ru Ware?
Ru Ware was originally produced for the Imperial courts of the Song Dynasty (960 - 1127). Authentic Ru Ware from this period is considered one of the most valuable of all Chinese ceramics given its scarcity and fact it was only intended for Royal use. The Ru kilns originated in Ruzhou, Henan Province and are particularly known for the small amounts of iron oxide in their glaze that oxidize and turn a greenish colour when fired.
