Many black-glazed vessels of this type were produced in the areas of Jeongok-ri, Uijeongbu-si, and Yeoju-si in Gyeonggi-do in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Made from coarse, colored clay, its black-glazed surface shines like that of porcelain. It has a lot of sand and bubbles on its surface, producing a rough texture, while fragments of other vessels have become embedded in its shoulder section during firing, but its glaze is well fused, producing a smooth sheen.<br />

<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 />
