Korean celadon wares, among the most highly prized of all Asian ceramics, were originally inspired by Chinese celadons of the Song dynasty (960–1279). The Korean glazes are more thinly applied than Chinese examples, and unstable kiln conditions produced wide variations in color. The most characteristic color of finer pieces is the gray green seen in this six-lobed wine cup.
