Abstract

Bottle, stoneware. In this example, the decorative technique employed was quite different from the other two Bundheong ware bottles shown here. In this instance, the surface of the piece was stamped with a pattern, perhaps made of fired clay. The surface of the piece was then coated with white slip (porcelain), including the impressed pattern elements. The surface was then scraped clean of the white slip, revealing the darker underlying clay, while the white clay remained in the indentations stamped into the surface, creating the contrasting pattern of light and dark that we see here.
