Jun Porcelain is a kind of Chinese porcelain with unique glaze color and reputation of historical value, traditional craftsmanship and artistic style. Nearly 1,500 years ago, Jun porcelain originated in the Central Plain of ancient China. Due to her natural elegance, the emperor of Tang Dynasty (618-907) removed Jun porcelain from the list of sacrificial objects. In addition, the eighth emperor of Song Dynasty (1082-1135) ordered Guan ware (a royal kiln) to be built in Juntai in today’s Yuzhou, Henan Province, to produce porcelain wares for the palace only.
The ore of different materials must go through over 70 processes to become the final Jun porcelain wares. This working process was created and followed by the craftsmen of Tang Dynasty (1300 years ago), while they could only make monochrome Jun porcelain works. As craftsmen in Song Dynasty became more sophisticated in the working procedures, the chromatogram of Jun porcelain gained. From then on, Jun porcelain had a unique style of bright color, which was different from the pale color of ordinary porcelain wares.Jun porcelain masters grasped the processes during firing in the kiln. They controlled the temperature of kiln to be higher than 1300 degrees Celsius (about 2400 degrees Fahrenheit), the firing degree and angles, and the timing of drawing, in order to a gorgeous and brilliant glaze color. The precise control of the process requires taking full advantage of natural conditions or climatic influences, so as to achieve reasonable but unexpected surprises. Hence, it is fair to say that a unique Jun porcelain ware is a delicate combination of extreme skillfulness and efforts of craftsmen.
