Celadon itself is a popular term that refers to ceramics covered in green glazes. The term has been associated with a large number of wares in China and such inclusiveness is convenient and yet at times problematic. Dr Ruby Leung (Lecturer, Department of Art History, HKU) will address celadon’s technical and stylistic distinctiveness to articulate it artistic importance. By examining and tracing the development of various objects associated with this term, this talk surveys the fascinating beauty that celadon embraces, and also explores how inappropriate the term can be in certain cases.
