It has a outward-turned rim. The side of the body is becoming narrow in the base. The bottem is flat.<br />
<br />
This yellowish brown, bowl-shaped, low-fired earthenware vessel is made from fine clay mixed with fine sand particles. It has no neck. The mouth is slightly everted while the rim is generally flat and features some grooves. The body is widest towards the upper-middle section, and the flat base is rounded where it joins the body. Parts of the vessel feature a paddled pattern which suggests that the surface was first paddled and then smoothed with water on a rotary device.<br />

It has a flat base and straight body. The body is divided with incised lines and each section is embellished with a simple wave design. A pair of D-shaped handles is attached to the body. Its lid features a hemispheric body surmounted by a button-shaped knob.<br />
<br />
This is a set consisting of a dark gray, high-fired stoneware bowl and its lid. The lid is crowned with a button-shaped knob at its center, which is encircled by two thinly incised lines drawn by a multitooth comb. These lines divide the lid&rsquo;s surface into inner and outer sections, to both of which wave designs have been applied. On each side of the bowl, a long, narrow, band-shaped handle is attached vertically and symmetrically. The base of the bowl is flat, while the part where the base and body of the bowl meet is rounded. The bowl gradually flares upwards. Three broad raised bands surround three parts of the body. A wave design is rendered between each band. Faint traces of paddled patterns are visible on parts of the base.

<p>The beginning of the 14th century saw a change in inlaid patterns from using both black and white clay to only using white clay, as demonstrated by this bowl. Concentric white circles extend around the upper and lower parts of the inner and outer surfaces, while the inner wall features a chrysanthemum design in three places. Sand is stuck to the foot and the outer base. The bowl is tinged with vivid yellow. Parts of the rim are slightly damaged, but the glaze is finely fused.<br />

Deep porcelain bowl with wide foot, fine body, and colorless glaze.<br />
<br />
This high-quality white porcelain bowl is presumed to have been produced at official court kilns around Usan-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggido. The well-levigated clay of finest quality was used for this bowl. Sagger was used to protect the bowl during firing to attain its pure white, immaculate surface. Entire foot of the bowl was glazed, and the foot was placed upon a fine white sand support to make the surface as clean as possible. The outer base is enscribed with Chinese character &ldquo;天&quot; (&ldquo;Cheon;&rdquo; sky, heaven)&rdquo; by scraping off the glaze. The characters &ldquo;大&rdquo; (&ldquo;Dae;&rdquo; big; great)&rdquo; and &ldquo;黃&rdquo; (&ldquo;Hwang;&rdquo; yellow) have been stippled after firing. Finely fused and sintered, this bowl exemplifies the essence of white porcelain made from offical court kilns, which is robust and white as a white jade.<br />

Large oblong, rectangular wooden bowl with rounded ends.<br />
<br />
These large bowls (<em>hamji</em>) were made by carving out large, single pieces of wood. Notches or handles have been carved out on two opposite sides of the outer walls, making them easy to carry. Round hamji bowls were sometimes carved on a turning lathe, but those with notches could be made by carving out single lengths of wood with an adz. These bowls were used in towns and the countryside alike. Affluent households would possess sets of large, medium-sized, and small bowls with notches piled up together. When grinding mung beans, beans, or red beans, such bowls are placed below a grindstone supported by a tripod.
