Please share your favorite celadon pieces!
I know a topic for Ru ware already exists, but I wanted to make a more general one.


I'll start with a Japanese seiji (青磁) guinomi by URAGUCHI Masayuki (浦口雅行) [b. 1964].
Mr. Uraguchi studied under MIURA Koheiji (三浦小平二) [1933-2006], Living National Treasure for celadon.

I love the deep, serene color. It has striking reddish crazing (kannyu, 貫入), but the color is not showing up well in these pics.
Also, those little specks are actually flat white; they're not sparkly. They make it look kind of like coral.

Wow, stunning piece. Really nice reddish crazing contrasting the deep blue glaze. Perfect size too for tea in hand.

I've got a pair of very green small shiboridashi by Shawn McGuire of Great Wheel Studio:

The cup is Kazuwa copper red ware, not celadon.

And this is little jar is beloved not only for the beautiful celadon, but for its role as my chocolate-keeper. It lives next to the tea-tray (naturally!).

It's another piece by Inge Nielsen.

I received a gong fu set from my mother almost 20 years ago. I have no clue who made it. Pictured are the pieces I still use from it today—the cha he being used everyday. The pot design is quite interesting to me, but still very ergonomic in the hand. I was pleased to find the cha he fit my Kohokujo pot perfectly.

Purchased around 10 years ago in a shop in Beijing, two Longquan celadon teapots.
