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.

Adoring World of JUN Porcelain
During the Yongzheng Period of the Qing Dynasty, the Royal Kiln Factory used copper as a colorant and combined with a secondary firing method to create turquoise green glaze. This glaze is rich in color, which is blue-green. There is imperial majesty in the subtlety, exuding the charming and noble temperament.
The national strength was prosperous during the Yongzheng and Qianlong Reigns of the Qing Dynasty. Because of being loved by the emperor with high artistic accomplishment, Turquoise green became a symbol of nobility and elegance, and its royal artistic charm was full.
In 2018, the R&D team of ZORO Gigrav used ancient methods to make traditional wood ash into the glaze, so that the turquoise green glaze in Jun porcelain’s works is different from the ancient ones and has unique sense of warmth. The glaze is like a gentleman, but also like a beauty. It is gentle and cultivated, quiet and peaceful. Turquoise green, which embodies the royal style of the past, finally enters the home of ordinary people in the new era and interprets our own quiet years.
