Celadon originated in China, and notable kilns such as the Longquan kiln in Zhejiang province are renowned for their celadon works. Celadon production later spread to other regions in Asia, such as Korea and Thailand.
The Longquan kiln sites in China were especially well-known internationally. Large quantities of Longquan celadon was exported throughout East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East in 13th - 15th century. Large celadon dishes were especially welcomed in Islamic nations.
Celadon production had a long history at Longquan and related sites, but it was not until the Five Dynasties (?? 907–960) and Northern Song (?? 960–1127) period that production of scale truly began. Five Dynasty wares displayed a variety of shapes and carved finishes with the characteristic "Yuezhou" (??) glaze. In the Northern Song period the Dayao (??) kiln site alone produced wares at twenty-three separate kilns. The era of greatest ceramic production was not until the Southern Song ?? (1127–1279), Yuan (? 1271–1368) and Ming (? 1368–1644) periods.
