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 (mixture of clay and water), and double-fired at high temperatures.
