The Beauty of Ru — Exhibition of Northern Song Dynasty Ru Ware is an exhibition that takes place at K. Y. Fine Art from April 1 - June 3, 2017. Over 100 Ru ware shards are showcased, together with two restored vessels and a rare Ru-type dish with incised peony design in bluish-green glaze. The exhibition also has on display three superb Ru ware shards from the former collection of a US connoisseur residing in Hong Kong, Mr. Ronald W. Longsdorf. While most of the exhibits can find their matching vessels in extant Ru ware, and those uncovered from the Qingliang Temple kiln site in Baofeng, some have never been seen before. They come in various tones and sizes, with motifs such as raised bands, lotus petal, dragon, flora, and Chinese inscriptions. Their forms include dishes, basins, boxes, bowls, vases, jars, duck-shaped censers, and cup stands. Alongside the shards, kiln furniture such as disc-supports and temperature testers are also on display, which provide important information for the study of Northern Song Ru ware.
