A single coat of thin glaze over a light gray clay body created the pale gray-green color on this ewer. The round belly is segmented to recall a melon, and the spout has two channels said to create an especially attractive flow of liquid. The single coat of glaze is typical of the earliest Yaozhou celadon ware.
