A Study of the Moulds in the Qiong Kilns and Related Issues
According to the different methods of producing porcelains, the moulds in the Qiong kilns can be divided into four types: compres sion molding, pressing and overlaid, imprinting and stamping moulds. Judging from the excavations of moulds and molded porcelains, the imprinting molding technique flourished in the Shifangtang kiln site in the late Tang dynasty and continued to grow with the development of the Shifangtang kilns until the Song dynasty, which also reflected the prosperity of Qiong kilns. As an important local kiln in Sichuan province, the imprinting molding technique of the Qiong kilns not only learned from the local traditional ceramic techniques, but also was influenced by the production technique of gold and silver wares in the Tang dynasty. The Qiong kilns also had a complex relationship with other contemporary kilns.
