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 chunky mugs show off the beautiful graduation of the Celadon colours achieved during the firing process. The celadon glaze on these chunky mugs varies in intensity which accentuates the form. Despite their delicate glaze they are exceptionally sturdy and hold the heat of your tea, coffee or soup for a very long time.  They are microwave and dishwasher proof, but please avoid thermal shock.
