This bright grayish-blue stoneware jar consists of a round base, globular body and long flaring neck. Narrow single ridges encircle the middle part of the neck, dividing it into four sections. Each section is engraved with a wave pattern. The shoulder doesn&rsquo;t have any pattern.<br />

This is a blue-gray, long-necked, high-fired stoneware jar. The horizontal ridge on the upper part of the long vessel neck marks the boundary between the neck and its inwardly curved mouth. The mouth slopes inward and has a sharp edge. The neck is divided into four sections by three horizontal ridges spaced at equal intervals, and each section is decorated by a wave design rendered with a comb with approximately ten teeth. The jar is widest at its upper-middle part, and the base is round with a slightly recessed center.<br />

<p>There are many examples of early Goryeo celadon decorated with parrot designs, produced under the influence&nbsp;of Chinese Yue ware. This bowl is decorated with an incised horizontal line on the inner wall just below the mouth and with incised design of a pair of parrots. It has a mouth that curves inwards, and a circle is incised on the inner bottom of the bowl. On its body, there are cracks in two parts, while iron spots are found on the inner wall and the foot. Refractory clay had fallen onto and adhered to the inner bottom, in parts, close to the foot during firing inside the kiln. The glaze was poorly fused overall, however the bowl appears to be high-quality as it had the entire foot glazed and used quartzite spurs to support the vessel during firing.<br />

Stoneware lotus-shaped cup and stand with celadon glaze. The cup is shaped in the style of a ten-lobed lotus blossom. On each lobe lies lightly incised chrysanthemum decoration. The cup rests on a pedestal in the design of an inverted lotus flower, which rises from the dish-like base of the stand, mounted on a fluted foot.
<p>This is a flower-shaped cup and stand which offers a good demonstration of the formal splendor of 12th century Goryeo celadon despite yellow-borwn coloration in places. Both the cup and stand have ten lobes and they were produced using molds. On each of the ten lotus petals of the cup and stand is incised a chrysanthemum, and another chrysanthemum design is incised on the upper part of the stand where the cup rests. Around the pedestal on where the cup sits is a band of inverted lotus petals. Each foot of the cup and stand has refractory spur marks.<br />

<p>This bowl is typical of early-Goryeo celadon in terms of shape and pattern. Similar examples have been excavated from sedimentary layers from the Kiln no. 10 at Yongun-ri, Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do. The entire inner wall is decorated with chrysanthemum sprays incised in fine lines. Chrysanthemum spray design is commonly found in Goryeo celadon produced between the 10th and the 11th centuries along with the motifs of chrysanthemum, scroll, cloud, parrot, and wave. The design is resemblent to those found in Yue ware, but the clay and glaze were sintered better and the glaze was exquisitely fused to turn into the beautiful color without crackles. Six refractory spurs were used to support the bowl during firing. The bowl was restored after a breakage into two halves.<br />

<p>This type of bowl was extensively produced throughout the 12th century. The outer wall is decorated with incised and raised deisgn of a two-tiered lotus petal. The glaze was oxidized, producing yellow-green color, but the application of glaze to the entire foot and the use of quartzite spurs indicate that this was produced as a high-quality item.<br />

<p>The inner surface of this bowl features an incised design of two parrots with long tails resembling phoenixes. e entire body of the bowl was glazed including the rim of the foot, on which remain three quartzite spur marks. Although some fireclay has fallen inside the kiln during ring and adhered to the inner surface of the bowl, the state of sintering is good. The piece as a whole is a high-quality ware with a glossy surface and a fine color of glaze. The base of the foot is cracked which occurred while drying before the application of glaze.<br />

<p>This is a round cup stand, a typical form of 12th century Goryeo celadon. The tray of the stand is incised with three chrysanthemum patterns, and encircling the rim is a fret pattern. The entirely glazed foot retains refractory spur marks. This is a defected product, the rim and foot of which have become warped during firing. The glaze is partially oxidized, giving the saucer a brown hue, but it was produced as a high-grade object.<br />

<p>This bowl is an example of an early celadon influenced by Chinese Yue ware. Similar vessels have been excavated from sedimentary layers of the Kiln no. 10 at Yongun-ri, Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do. The design, which features two parrots with their wings spread around the bowl&rsquo;s inner wall, is also similar to the design found in Yue ware. This piece counts as medium quality ware, since its glaze is poorly fused. Refractory spurs are stuck around the rim, while the glaze has flowed downwards. There are six refractory spur marks on the shallow foot.<br />
