JUN GLAZE IMAGE
I've tried with this image to combine the hanzi used to write CHUN / JUN the name of a glaze with colors and semi transperency that suggest the actual glaze colors which can vary from pale near celadon blue to a mixture of blue red green and purple depending on which clays and slips are under it or if you also splash copper or cobalt oxide over the glaze as well.
I personally prefer a light coat of mid blue slip and then maybe a spiral trail of copper oxide over the glaze if I'm doing a bowl.
