Description

Subject Matter:

Longquan celadon ware, another successor to Yue celadon ware, also emerged around the 10th century, from a village named Dayao in southern China.
Initially, during the Northern Song dynasty (960-1127), Longquan ware was covered in celadon glazes ranging in colour from faint yellowish-green to a dark olive tone, before evolving to adopt pastel and sea-green shades by the time of the Southern Song dynasty (1127-1279).
After taking initial cues from both Yue and Yaozhou celadon ware, Longquan celadon ware eventually developed its own decorative style, combining elements of impressed designs, spotted splashes and intricate moulded appliqués.
