Cizhou ware (Chinese: 磁州窯) is a type of Chinese ceramics. It was developed during the Northern Song period in the 11-12th century. "Cizhou" was initially the name of a kiln area in Southern Hebei. Cizhou ware consisted in a transparent glaze applied on a white slipped-body, but was later followed by numerous variations.
