Celadon porcelain originated in China and was introduced to Japan by the 10th century. Among the aristocratic classes at that time, celadon ware from China was regarded as the finest imported goods at the time. They adored its mysterious blue color and named it "secret-color."
Production of celadon ware began in the Hizen region, the northwestern part of present Kyushu in the early Edo period (c. 1603-1868), and the technique was later passed on to Kyoto and nearby areas. In 1957, the craft technology was designated a national intangible cultural asset. Celadon continues to be loved by many and is worked on by many potters and artists today.
