This research aims to examine compositional and microstructural properties of grayish-blue-powdered celadon in Wonju Beopcheon-temple site. X-ray fluorescence sequential spectroscopy (XRF) with micro-point analysis, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) were applied to determine the chemical composition, microstructure and crystallinity of samples, respectively. As a result, the average compositions of bodies were low silica ($RO_2$) and high flux (RO+$R_2O$). Owing to the high content of calcium oxide the glaze is considered lime type between limealkali type. The body of celdon sheard was found quarts, mullite, microcline, albite. Especially, the body's chemical compositions were compared to the results of previous studies by using a Seger formula. The compositional properties of Grayish-blue-powdered celadon in Wonju Beopcheon-temple site showed diffrently from the the other grayish-blue-powdered celadon.
