Subject matter
A stoneware bowl from a Qilizhen (七里镇窑) kiln from the Southern Song (1127-1279) to Yuan dynasties (1271-1368).

The Qilizhen kiln is also known as the Qianzhou kiln.  Both are part of the Ganzhou kiln sites, located in the east suburb of Ganzhou, Jiangxi Provice. These kilns became active around the late Tang dynasty and continued through the Ming dynasty, reaching their zenith during the Song dynasty.  The everyday wares from these kilns are heavily potted, often combed to mimic basketry, and are glazed in green, brown, and black. 

Physical Description
A small, thickly potted, squat, brown stoneware bowl on a wide footring and everted rim.  It has concave articulation, and brown glaze covering half the exterior and the entire interior body, with repairs.
