As a saying goes “gold has price but Jun porcelain priceless”. The value of Jun porcelain lies in its Kiln Change process. The craftsmen add some copper to the glaze and then bake it in the kiln. In the process, by using magical kiln change techniques, varied colors are produced. Even in the same direction, a slight difference may create quite different products with various colors. Through this magic process, intermixed colors are glowing in their brilliance and form a beautiful contrast. People always contrast the porcelain to gold and jade, as the saying goes, when put together, it is better than jade. Expensive color-glazed porcelain products had been for the use of the royalty and popular relics in the eyes of noble people.
