About the artwork (ash-glazed pitcher):<br>The earliest examples of ash glazes are from Shang Dynasty China (c. 1500 B.C." As the name suggests, ash glazes are derived from wood or vegetable ashes. They were likely produced accidentally, the result of ash from the kiln fire being carried on a draft, settling onto the pots, and vitrifying in the intense heat. Three and a half millenia later, ash glazes are still used to add subtle and pleasing surfaces to decorative and functional ceramic pieces.
