During Song and Yuan Dynasties, the discovery of the use of kaolin made possible the preparation of the porcelain body compound, a mixture of porcelain stone and kaolin (abinary formula) Thus, the firing temperature was greatly raised, deformation during firing reduced and porcelain quality significantly improved. That had brought about a qualitative leap forward in the history of china's ceramic industry, and laid a solid foundation for Jingdezhen's subsequent status as the porcelain metropolis of the world.
