Longquan - City of Celadon

Last weekend, I had a great time travelling with friends to Longquan. It is known as the birthplace of Celadon glazed porcelain since Song Dynasty, and I think it is possibly one of the rare places where traditional crafts are still being so well kept in China. I was impressed by the people who are still trying to pass on the craft of pottery making in the region, and how they pursue and appreciate the beauty of the jade like Celadon glaze.

One of my best memories was passing through the trail in the morning between charming paddy fields to visit an ancient kiln in the mountain. Surrounded by different shades of trees and over look a running river, no doubt the people were inspired by the beautiful nature in here. Really want to come back to this lovely place again!
