The delicate and timeless quality of celadon is considered elegant and ethereal.
The name celadon is a 17th-century French word of Greek origin used to refer to colours ranging from blue-green to soft grey-green seen in certain ceramics. The French had chosen the word as it was the name of the shepherd hero of the pastoral romance Astrée by Honoré d’Urfé. This character wore a striking green cloak and so the word came to be fashionable for describing particular greens.

Celadon glaze refers to a family of usually partly transparent but coloured glazes, many with pronounced (and sometimes accentuated) "crackle", or tiny cracks in the glaze produced in a wide variety of colors, generally used on stoneware or porcelain pottery bodies.
The unique grey or green celadon glaze is a result of iron oxide's transformation from ferric to ferrous iron during the firing process. Individual pieces in a single firing can have significantly different colours, from small variations in conditions in different parts of the kiln. Most of the time, green was the desired colour, reminding the Chinese of jade, always the most valued material in Chinese culture.
The most famous and desired shades range from a very pale green to deep intense green, often meaning to mimic the green shades of jade. As with most glazes, crazing (a glaze defect) can occur in the glaze and, if the characteristic is desirable, is referred to as "crackle" glaze.
Greenwares are found in earthenware from the Shang dynasty onwards.
The earliest major type of celadon was Yue ware, which was succeeded by a number of kilns in north China producing wares known as Northern Celadons, sometimes used by the imperial court. The best known of these is Yaozhou ware. All these types were already widely exported to the rest of East Asia and the Islmamic world.
Thai Celadon is a beautiful stoneware using an ancient technique where wood ash glaze is applied to the pottery. After firing, the products have a stunning green or blue finish. As with so much in Chiang Mai, the pottery is all handmade. Thai Celadon products are sold at stores throughout the world.
Chiang Mai, known as the distinguished city rich of prosperous culture and ancient long history,
characteristically has its own fascinating art and cultural which is so worthwhile to be saved and inherited onto an upcoming generation.
From an intangible intellectual property to a collection of an exquisite craftsmanship and handicraft work, by this, it can prove that Chiang Mai itself has a strong sense of a significant cultural identity for being a regional hub of many Northern artworks.
Celadon is one kind of three main types of ceramics in Thailand. Its production has continued to develop from its early beginnings 700 years ago until the present.
The name celadon is a 17th-century French word of Greek origin used to refer to colours ranging from blue-green (‘kingfisher’) to soft grey-green seen in certain ceramics. The French had chosen the word as it was the name of the shepherd hero of the pastoral romance Astrée by Honoré d’Urfé. This character wore a striking green cloak and so the word came to be fashionable for describing particular greens.
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 porcelains. Celadon production later spread to other regions in Asia, such as Japan, Korea and Thailand. Finer pieces are in porcelain, but both the color and the glaze can be produced in stoneware and earthenware.
