What is celadon? Celadon stoneware was first perfected in Song Dynasty China where it was prized for its jade-like appearance. This style of celadon is not made with any paints or dyes; instead, it is made of clay with relatively high iron contents, glazed with a slip ( a mixture of clay and water), and double-fired at high temperatures.
