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, you¡¯d never know what you are going to get. This particular plate costs around RMB 2,500.
