Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/5

Jizhou kilns came out in late Tang Dynasty, flourished in the two Song Dynasties and went down hill in late Yuan Dynasty. It is  so named because of its location .As Yonghe was governed by Dongchang Prefecture at that time, the kilns were also referred to as Dongchang kilns or Ynghe kilns. The porcelains or china made by these kilns are exquisite and elegant, with a lot of varieties. Among them, the black vitreous enamel(also called Tamuka vitreous enamel)is the most famous. The leaves-design Tamuka vitreous enamel and paper-cutting –design Tamuka vitreous enamel enjoy high popularity both at home and abroad. The porcelains or china made by these kilns were sold to overseas and collected by museums and collectors of many countries. The ancient porcelain academe of Jizhou kilns and the Jizhou porcelain factory were constructed in 1982 and 1984 respectively. Their imitations of ancient porcelain are sold well both at home and in foreign countries. On the relics of the Jizhou kilns stands a Buddhist pagoda of Benjue Temple. The nine-storey pagoda is 25 meters high and has six faces, towering imposingly to form a beautiful picture together with the simple-designed kilns and the pseudo-classic factory buildings, adding radiance and beauty to each other.
