Antique celadon. The bottle on the left is Korean celadon from the early 12th century, Koryo Dynasty. The example on the right is late 11th to early 12th century Chinese celadon. The golden age of celadon in Korea was during the middle and latter part of the 11th century when the influence of Buddhism increased the need for fine vessels to be used during religious ceremonies. Praised for its kingfisher blue-green color, the art form was lost after the Koryo Dynasty. However, Korean celadon has never lost its inherent value, beauty or appeal, and there was a re-birth of celadon in the 1950s when a group of Korean artisans set out to discover the lost art of Koryo celadon. #objet_d_emotion
