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 small, delicate espresso cups and saucers are exquisite and something to admire and treasure, the celadon glaze offsets their pared down, simple design. They should be used and enjoyed, not put into a china cabinet and admired.  Despite their delicate appearance they are strong, food safe and dishwasher proof but please avoid thermal shock.   

For just a couple of days in February these delightful pieces are on sale at a special price of $100 for 4 ...or $25 each.
