Korean ceramics: Jar, Buncheong ware.

by unknown

Abstract

A modest sized Buncheong ware jar, perhaps 5 inches in height. Stoneware with a white slip that was applied thickly with a coarse brush that left a sense of the gesture of the brush stroke on the surface. The form of this piece calls to mind the similar forms of pieces made in Japan in the 16th century, on the island of Kyushu, by Korean potters, such as those who created Takatori-ware in present-day Fukuoka Prefecture. An example of such a piece may be seen in image soc000146, in the St. Olaf College collection, Asian Take Out. Gift of Mr. Arthur J. McTaggart, 1998.25
