Literature:

‘Where do these exquisite porcelains come from? These heavenly products are greatly loved.With their lustrous, glossy appearance they are the equal of jade. With these green-glazed censers standing here,big bronze tripod censers hold no attraction.’-14th century Japanese monk-poet

“窯瓷精緻何處來,括蒼所產良足愛,滑潤光生與玉侔,青爐峙立厭鼎鼐”-(日本十四世紀的詩僧)

Named after the Longquankiln, one of the six famous kilns in Zhejiang province, China, the evolution of Celadon Pottery has its origins in the period of the Three Kingdoms(220 –280 AD), and the Jin Dynasty (265 –420 AD). However, it was in the Southern Song period (1127 –1279 AD) that the production of Celadon pottery reaches its zenith, when the Southern Song court established itself at Hangzhou. The refined tastes of the elites and the pursuit of a highly aestheticized way of life exerted a great influence on the stylistic direction of Celadon pottery. The lime-alkaline glaze of Longquan ware begun to take on a soft-green quality which is viscous and richer in appearance. When motifs like sprig-moulded decorations in the form of fish and dragons are applied, the translucency of the glaze gives the impression that they are under water. Potters glaze the porcelains upwards of ten times to achieve a smooth, jade-like gloss. Yet, the glaze is unclouded, and retains the clarity of water.The Longquan Celadon pottery has long been sought after for its subtle beauty and delicate craftsmanship, not just in China, but also in Japan, where many Song Dynasty pieces became treasured items in the homes of connoisseurs.

以中国浙江省六大名窑之一的龙泉窑命名,青瓷器的发展起源于三国时期(公元220-280)和晋朝(公元265 -420年)。然而,正是在南宋时期(公元1127年-公元1279年),当南宋建都在杭州时,青瓷的生产达到了顶峰。精英的精致品味和对高度审美化生活方式的追求对青瓷器的风格方向产生了重大影响。龙泉瓷器的石灰碱性使得釉料开始呈现淡青色特质,外观粘稠,丰富。当用像鱼和龙等枝状模制装饰的图案时,釉面的半透明性给人的印象是它们在水下。陶工将瓷器上釉十次以上,以达到完全光滑,翡翠般的光泽。然而,釉料透明,并保持水搬清澈。龙泉青瓷一直以其极致的精美工艺而受到追捧,不仅在中国,而且在日本,许多宋代作品在鉴赏家的家中成为珍贵的宝物。
