Valuable Chun

Chun or Jun is the name of a famous Chinese glaze generally producing blues and areas of green red or purple depending on what clays and  slips its used over and whether or not you add a splash of copper pigment and the heat of the kiln too.

People like to romantize the glaze names n
but fond their actual meanings simply refer to their place of origin.

While you can hand build objects and vessels and use Chun glazes most Song dynasty Chun artifacts were wheel thrown bowls.
