LANGYAOHONG: (Sang de Boeuf) was developed at the Imperial Kilns at Jingdezhen, Eastern China, under the supervision of Lang Tingji (1663-1715) during the KANGXI REIGN (1662-1722). The thick and viterous deep Maroon Glaze gives Sang de Boeuf porcelain it's distinctive appearance. This traditional glazing technique inspired many European Artists throughout the ages.
