Longquan celadon began in the Northern Song Dynasty and flourished in the Southern Song Dynasty. In 960 ad, Longquan celadon began to be fired. In the late Northern Song Dynasty, Longquan became an important base of celadon production in the southern China. In the Southern Song Dynasty, from 1127 to 1279 a.d., Longquan celadon entered its heyday. It successfully produced celadon like "plum green glaze" and "bean green glaze", which became the representative of Longquan celadon style.


On September 30, 2009, the traditional firing technique of Longquan celadon was officially listed as the intangible cultural heritage of mankind. This is the first and only ceramic project in China to be selected. In recent decades, Longquan celadon art has been well inherited and developed under the care of all walks of life at home and abroad. A large number of skilled craftsmen have emerged.
