Celadon is a term for pottery denoting both wares glazed in the jade green celadon color, also known as greenware and a type of transparent glaze, often with small cracks, that was first used on greenware, but later used on other porcelain. Cheong-ja - This is the name of the jade green pottery and is called either “celadon” as we have called it here, or “green celadon” to distinguish it from other types of Korean pottery. The literal meaning of the word Cheong-Ja is blue/green porcelain. Beauty of celadon can be seen in the delicate latticework of cracks visible under its glaze, called crazing, and in the deep jade-green color. The shapes derived from nature such as those representing the human form further enhance its appeal. It is somewhat difficult to appreciate the beauty of celadon from a picture - one must look closely at the fine pattern of crazing under the deep azure-green glaze. The longer one looks at its rich color the more beautiful it appears. Material: Ceramic Size: 11x12cm Pattern: Crack pattern Fish: The fish represents a superior realization.
