- Production of celadon-glazed ceramics began in Korea as early as the ninth or tenth century. Scholars believe that Chinese potters from Yue-ware kilns, fleeing disruptions in the Yue region, may have brought the technology to kilns in southwest Korea. This ewer was probably fired at Kangjin, one of the major production centers of Korean celadon during the Koryo dynasty.
