Doucai is one of the techniques developed in the Jingdezhen kilns during the Ming and Qing dynasties. In this technique, the design is first outlined in cobalt blue on the clay body, which is then fired at a high temperature. Next the outlined spaces are filled with red enamel, and the body is fired again at a low temperature. An excellent example of doucai ceramics, this deep bowl has a unique composition and contrast of colors.
