Detail: Bright green, emerald green, cerulean blue, and olive green are all various shades of celadon that also indicate the kiln locations and periods of their creation, pointing to the fact how celadon works are indeed diverse. Celadon was first created in China by fusing together simple forms and vibrant colors and was widely accepted across Asia to Euro-America, from emperors and aristocrats to the general public. This exhibition explores celadon works from Yue and Longquan kilns in China as well as those of Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asia to show how celadon had charmed the world.
