Abstract: The Ru Guan-celadon ware was first fired in the Qingliangsi state-run kiln much earlier than the Dilingtou Guan-styled celadon and the Southern-Song Guan-celadon products made in the kilns in Shanghulin and Hangzhou areas respectively. The celadon products of the three kilns were born at the different periods of the Song dynasty, but they have sort of the shared features. The thesis proceeds the Ru Guan-celadon(Official-celadon), the Dilingtou Guan-styled celadon(Official-styled celadon) and the Southern-Song Guan-greenish ceramic(Official-greenish ceramic) for the contrast analysis between the glaze elements, materials and techniques as well. The conclusion is as follows: First, the glazes contain similar major and minor materials. The glaze-making techniques are interlinked in succession. Second, there is possibility that the kind of greenish ceramic has the mixture of ceramic stone or feldspar with high K2O and low TiO2 content and a certain ratio of limestone and ash together to meet the formula composition close to that of the Ru Guan-celadon. Third, neither the Dilingtou official-styled celadon(Guan-styled celadon) nor the Southern-Song official-greenish ceramic(Guan-greenish ceramic) fail to take the southern traditional formula using ash and stone which is used for the making of Yue kiln glaze, but they both followed the northern core techniques making glazes for the Ru Guan-celadon. Besides, they created the newly-styled porcelains distinguished from the traditional transparent Yue ware made in Zhejiang region.
