Korean ceramics: Jar in the shape of a barrel, porcelain.

Abstract

This piece presents an interesting contrast to the elegance of most of the other Korean forms presented here, images ecasia000382 through ecasia000387. This piece is heavy and broadly proportioned when compared with the other bottle forms with their narrow, soaring necks. Technically, it is an interesting piece, having been constructed obviously of three separate pieces. The body of the piece appears to have been formed by throwing two bowl forms which were then joined together, rim to rim, in the same manner as appeared to have been the case with the "Moon Jar" shown in image ecasia000358. The neck of this jar is also a separately thrown piece, a cylindrical form which was joined to the top of the piece to form its neck. The Avery Brundage Collection, B60P926
