Jun ware is a type of celadon, with a strange blue and white color due to its unique makeup. Those who wish to obtain some of the best Jun ware in Beijing can find a nice shop conveniently located near the Forbidden City. It is called Yan Bao Tang.

 

This shop offers a selection of Jun porcelain made straight from the origin, Yu County in Henan. There, the Jun ware were made using an ancient kiln excavated 3 decades ago.

 

I had a chat with Mr. Wang, the shop owner and noted connoisseur. He told me he was fascinated by Jun porcelain and the process - Furnace Transmutation. This technique could make shimmering chinaware by the irregular application of glaze.

 

In the shop, I saw a mountain-themed plate. But after the Furnace Transmutation process, a Santa image popped up unexpectedly. This is the magic of Furnace Transmutation. Before the process finished, youd never know what you are going to get. This particular plate costs around RMB 2,500.


Though most of the products copy traditional designs, there are some modern patterns. Two bottle vases with bronze lace and flames are actually designed by Mr. Han Meilin, who created Beijings Olympic mascots. Each vase sells for around RMB 3,000.
