Jun porcelain originated from Yuzhou City in central China. It has flourished in China for over one thousand years.


What makes Jun porcelain unique is that theres no pattern to be designed. It fascinates people by its magnificent natural beauty. This is created by the process "Yao Bian", or "Kiln transformation". The ware enters the kiln as a bland piece of pottery. But after bisque burning at low temperature, followed by glaze application at high temperature, the product reappears out of the kiln with thousands of fantastic colors. Because of the random process involved, each piece is totally unique.


The production of Jun porcelain is very difficult, as a tiny mistake can ruin the entire process.


On the second floor of Baigong Handicraft Museum lies a shop named Junbao Zhai, who specializes in Jun porcelain ware. Various Jun porcelain items like vases and bowls fill the shelves. The main colors include purple, blue, green and red. But as the patterns are not made by man, you must examine them closely to find the pattern.


A smaller round vase in purple color cost about 800 yuan. The most expensive one cost more than ten thousand yuan.
