/// similar celadon teapots: 1. 2. 3.
I originally thought celadon was exclusive to Korea (Goryeo celadon), but I guess as one of the oldest civilizations, everything can be traced back to China. The elegant pale blue-green color is extremely hard to produce; dozens are tossed out from from a single firing because they are extremly prone to brownish oxidation blemishes. So, a flawless celadon pot is rare and precious.
There is something quieting about the aesthetics of this teapot don't you think? Contrary to the posh cuteness of Western teapots, East Asian teapots command respect, humility, and reverence; I am unabashedly biased.
