This is a reddish yellow, deep-bowl-shaped, low-fired earthenware vessel. Such vessels were generally used for boiling but this example contains no trace of use and is therefore likely to have come from a tomb. The vessel does not have a neck, the mouth is everted, and the flat edge of the rim features a groove. The vessel body is widest towards the upper-middle section, and the flat base is rounded where it joins the vessel body. The inner and outer surfaces of the vessel body show clear traces of paddling, but it is unclear whether these are cord-paddled markings. The base retains traces of the potter&rsquo;s wheel.<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 celadon bowl is decorated with mold-impressed designs, which was one of popular type of dishes in 11th and 12th centuries. On its inner walls are lotus scroll designs, and on its inner base is what is presumed to be a lotus flower design. Glaze has been applied all the way down to the rim of the foot, which retains traces of silica supports in three places. The yellow-green glaze is evenly spread on the surface, while the clay is of specially selected high quality, producing a smooth surface.<br />

<p>This bowl was produced between the late 12th and 13th century, when ornate decoration was accorded greater importance than the beauty of color. A small circle was incised at the inner bottom, surrounded by two concentric circles inlaid with white slip. On the inner wall are decorated four small medallions inside which are rendered chrysanthemum sprays. On both the upper part of the inner and outer walls are decorated a band of scrolls and a pair of horizontal lines, respectively. The low foot displays refractory spur marks. Glaze drips and cracks are visible in parts of the bowl&rsquo;s surface.<br />

<p>This is celadon maebyeong decorated with large foliage spray designs painted in underglaze iron brown in two sides of its body. Such celadon wares decorated with oral scrolls in underglaze iron brown and coated with greenish-brown glaze were generally produced in large numbers in the area of Jinsan-ri in Haenam-gun, Jeollanam-do. The body contains lots of white quarts sand, producing rough surface. The foot is wide and at and ne grains of sand are adhere to it. It is yellow-brown overall, though glaze has gathered towards the base, creating a greener tone.<br />

Produced in an official court kiln of Joseon, this white porcelain bowl is relatively large in size. The presence of ashes and sand on its inner base indicates that it is a midium-grade object which was not fired inside a sagger. Fine sand of the kind found on high-grade white porcelain is stuck to its foot, but its rim is wider than those of highgrade objects. The state of its foot, its color, and form are similar to those of medium-grade white porcelain bowls produced at the Kiln no. 5 at Beoncheon-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do.<br />

This small jar is decorated with three horizontal lines around the rim and floral scrolls on the body. It was placed on coarse sand during firing. Poor sintering of clay and fusion of glaze have produced many pinholes. Glaze is not evenly coated on the surface, causing glaze crawling and diminishing of gloss. Product of a regional kiln in the late 19th century, the jar is damaged around the rim. Small jars as this one were esteemed by collectors, who were keen on small objects, in the 1980s.<br />

This white porcelain incense burner, featuring an openwork design on the body, is made of fine clay with high-iron content, which has tinged the surface with dark gray. The glaze has been removed from the part covered by the lid, exposing the red body. The foot is entirely glazed; sand spurs were supported in some parts of the foot rim during firing. Cracks formed in the foot and the base during firing. This object has a larger belly and narrower foot than typical traditional white porcelain incense burners.<br />
