History

Celadon greenish glaze has been used on Chinese stoneware for over 1,000 years. It was the most celebrated celadon of early China. The highest-quality workshops were located in Southern China producing sophisticated green wares we collectively call Yue-style wares or celadons. They are noted for the simplicity, symmetry and elegance of the smooth ceramic body.
