Hare’s Fur

The Hare’s Fur glaze was probably developped in China during the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). It is applied in thick layers, which bubble up through one another and generate patterns ranging from metallic crystals to running streaks. These striated patterns are similar to the fur of a rabbit. This glaze became even more interesting during the mid-twentieth century when scandinavian artists such as Berndt Friberg reinterpreted the Ancient technique in their work.
