The pale green glaze called celadon is a hallmark of Asian porcelain. An iron oxide in the mixture gives the glaze its color, and a pale green reminiscent of jade is the most common, especially in contemporary decorative arts. Korean potters during the Choson dynasty (1392–1910) were inspired by earlier imported wares from Ming dynasty China (1368–1644) and took the art to new heights. When the technique migrated to Japan, it was primarily Korean work that was the most influential, with a distinctly Japanese style evolving through the work of master potters in the late 18th century.
