The art of producing Celadon ware (also known as greenware) 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 platter is a stunning example of superb craftsmanship and elegant design. Each one is different but have the basic elements of  exposed white porcelain and celadon glaze  which delicately enhances any food you arrange on the platter, it is particularly useful as a cheese platter, or for tapas and canapes. It is one of those pieces you keep for those special occasions with family and friends throughout the year. It's precious and unique and deserves some special care so hand wash only in warm soapy water, then dry with a clean dry cloth.  Do not put in the dishwasher or microwave.
