"Celadons, the colour caught between green and blue, get sky after rain, and kingfishers, and iced water, all of which are lyrical.” Edmund de Waal.

The name, celadon, is derived from 18th France, the term denoted a pale willow-green colour named after Chelation, the hero of D'Urfes's drama, Astree, who wore a pale green cape.
