public_access_description
This jar is an early example of glaze manipulation for decorative effect. The result is not particularly striking, as the brown splashes do not contrast sharply with the dark brown glaze. Nevertheless it inspired later potters to improve on the glaze recipe to produce a russet on brown colour scheme.
