I seek advice on celadon. Such as, what are signs of quality or lack of quality, etc. I can visit places of production in the city & nearby & perhaps even commission pieces that I haven't seen & don't own, gaiwans & tea trays. Advice on gaiwan celadons is requested.
I will arrive in Thailand Jan. 3rd for a 10-week stay which will include a few weeks in Chiangmai where celadon is made. The green cups & teapots that I have seen but not examined, have never excited me; however, I decided I should purchase at least a couple sets of teaware because there will be room for it in my luggage this trip.
I can buy at low prices from vendors of the weekend night markets. Is there a reason not to do this?
