    Korean ceramics: Vase with reeds and egret, buncheong style ware. by Park Young-sook (1947 - )

    Vase with reeds and egret, 1998, is a modern piece by Park Young-sook (1947 - ). The simple stoneware form was covered with white slip, which was then drawn through with a sharp tool, revealing the darker clay body beneath. Bits of clay and copper-oxide were added to form the tops of the reeds and the entire piece was then covered with a clear glaze contained a small amount of iron oxide, which produces the light green color, known as celadon. The techniques employed by the artist call deliberately on earlier traditions of Korean pottery, the buncheong tradition of the Joseon (Yi) dynasty (1392-1910). Gift of Dr. and Mrs. Marvin Gordon, 1999.48
