The term "official kiln" has different connotations in the history of ancient Chinese ceramics. Broadly speaking, it is a kind of ceramics kiln specially run by the government, whose products are monopolized by the court. In the Song Dynasty, the official kiln is a special term, referring to the celadon fired by the palace kilns in Bianjing (Bianliang, Kaifeng) and Linan (Hangzhou) in the Northern and Southern Song Dynasties. Therefore, there are "old officials" and "new officials". The former is the official kiln in the Northern Song Dynasty, and the latter is the official kiln in the Southern Song Dynasty. The official kiln of the Northern Song Dynasty is said to be the first "state-owned" kiln in the history of China's ceramics, which was invested solely by the imperial court and was also the first to be built by the emperor, because Huizong of the Song Dynasty was not satisfied with the defects and defects of the existing Gongyu ceramics at that time, and introduced the production essence of Ru ceramics and Kaifeng Dongyao kilns. Porcelain types monopolized by human beings. Official kilns of the Northern Song Dynasty have few handed down products. Their utensils mainly include bowls, bottles and washing. Among them, the shape of pen washing is ever-changing, including straight mouth, lotus mouth, sunflower mouth, longevity peach, string pattern, animal head and animal ear. The utensils are so beautiful and endless that they fully reflect the cultural wisdom and creation of Huizong. The pursuit and perfection of glaze color of official porcelain in Northern Song Dynasty also reached a very high level. Its glaze was thick and its porcelain had no decoration. It mainly used the beauty of glaze color and the beauty of cracks to reach the aesthetic realm of artistic purity, beauty and natural charm.
