A type of glazed pottery with the dominant colors of yellow, brown and green was very popular in the Tang 
Dynasty (618-907). It was later called the tri-colored glazed pottery of the Tang Dynasty, or Tangsancai. 

The Tang tri-colored glazed pottery is a low-melting glaze pottery. It was made by adding metallic oxides 
into the colored gaze and calcining the object, thus forming different colors including the predominant yellow, 
brown and green. The chemicals in the glaze changed gradually in the firing process, creating a variegated effect 
that has a majestic and elegant artistic attraction. Tri-colored glazed pottery was usually used for burial 
objects. The loose and brittle quality of its base and its low waterproofing properties meant it was not as 
practical as the blue and white porcelain that had already emerged by that time. 

Tri-colored glazed pottery utensils of the Tang Dynasty were usually rounded and full in shape in accordance 
with the aesthetic values of the time. The accurately proportioned human and animal figures have fluid lines, 
natural expressions and life-like movements. The soldier figures have strong muscles, big staring eyes and 
swords or arrows in their hands. The woman figures have high hair buns and full sleeves; they stand gracefully 
erect, looking natural and elegant. The animal figures are mainly horses and camels. 

Tri-colored glazed pottery was exported to foreign countries in the early Tang Dynasty and won great favor. 
It has always been famed for its bright colors and pleasing shapes. Tri-colored glazed pottery of the Tang 
Dynasty is a shining pearl among ancient Chinese pottery.
