From being an apprentice to expert, it took Li Yuening almost 30 years to study and rejuvenate the long-lost craftsmanship of imperial kiln during the Southern Song (1127-1279) dynasty. Multiple glazes were the main characteristics of then kiln products. As the only inheritor who mastered the complicated technique, Li hoped to carry forward the craftsmanship in the future.
