The art of producing Celadon ware is difficult and time consuming.  It was for centuries a special art form developed and produced only in China, but has since spread around the world to many parts of the world including Korea who have produced some of the world's most famous, classic, highly prized Celadon pieces. The typical jade green colour is produced by firing a glaze containing just the right amount of iron oxide to produce the typical green colour it is renowned for.  Too little iron oxide produces a blue glaze, too much produces a dark green to almost black glaze, so it is an exacting art using a reducing kiln.  Very few Australian potters have mastered it - Sally is one who has.

These "wobbly" bowls are both classically elegant and functional. They are an ideal, multipurpose size for noodles, soups, pastas, cereal and individual side salads.  The delicate green of the Celadon glaze appears to be translucent on the white porcelain clay Sally has used to hand throw these bowls.  They are stunning for a formal dinner party, but very strong and durable for day to day ware due to the high firing temperature of 1280 degrees centigrade required to get this right.  They are microwave and dishwasher proof, but please handle these precious bowls with care and avoid thermal shock.
