Reference —  Celadon
The western name for a type of glaze first used in China on stoneware and porcelain in an attempt to imitate the color and texture of jade. Its colors, ranging from shades of green to gray tones, depend on the percentage of iron it contains. Historically, celadon has been fired in a reducing atmosphere, but celadon colors may now be attained in an electric kiln.
