In the early days(Tang Dynasty), black glaze, white glaze, green glaze, tea glaze and white glaze green color, brown color, black color and three-colored pottery were mainly burned. During the Five Dynasties, a large number of black glazes were fired, and there were also a small number of exquisite white glazed porcelain, which is currently the highly regarded "quasi-firewood kiln." In the middle period(Song and Jin), it was mainly burned blue glazed porcelain. The Northern Song Dynasty was the heyday of Yaozhou Kiln. It was recorded and burned "tribute porcelain" for the court.
