Pyongyang, April 5 (KCNA) -- The Koryo celadon is well known to the world and its making technique was listed in the DPRK as a national intangible cultural heritage under the Workers' Party of Korea's policy on preserving cultural heritages.
The jade green Koryo celadon has taken a prominent position in the world history of ceramic workmanship for its rich variety, distinct color, patterns and shapes and high artistic value.
Its color reflects the emotion, hobby and taste of the Korean people who love bright, vivid and soft colors.
