The use of clay as a medium for art and a material for construction goes back several millennia, especially in the Far East. The Jomon culture of prehistoric Japan produced some of the oldest known pottery in the world. The Chinese particularly excelled in producing ceramics. The inventions of celadon and porcelain with their advanced techniques of glazing and firing made Chinese ceramics famous around the world.

Jade Eagle is happy to provide both decorative pieces and functional, food-safe tableware. We offer lines of Chinese Celadonware, Japanese Noodle Bowls and hand-made Mino ceramics, tea accessories and hand-painted porcelain soap dishes.

The term "celadon" is now used to denote a light green color, but originally it was used to denote a class of ceramic characterized by its translucent glaze and soft hues of green and blue. 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, double-fired at high temperatures and glazed with a slip (mixture of clay and water). Depending on the iron content of the clay used, the slip produces different colors of glaze, including light blue, plum green, grey-blue and dark jadeite green. In some pieces the interior glaze is intentionally crackled. For the glaze to come out correctly, the right clay must be used and temperatures and oxygen levels in the kiln must be carefully controlled. The clean, serene appearance of celadon has been appreciated for centuries.
