Bowl with incised design
20th century
Gift of Professor Charles H. and Katharine C. Sawyer

<p>This is a celadon lidded bowl with the top of the lid decorated with a peony spray design inside a hexafoil outline inlaid with black and white slips. The foot was made by removing clay from the underside of the base and retains traces of quartzite spurs in three places. The glaze was slightly darkened on the upper part with faint gloss. The glaze is poorly fused on the base of the body, leaving practically no sheen. The piece is of high value, however, for the glimpse it offers of Goryeo&rsquo;s refined yet splendid inlaid celadon ware, thanks to its decorative design that depicts a peony in full bloom, inlaid with white clay.<br />

These are <em>jubal</em>, a type of bowl used for serving steamed rice and often also called a <em>sabal</em>. The upper surfaces of the lids of these bowls are decorated with incised lines. Their bases are flat, without feet. The shapes of bowls follow regional characteristics. In northern provinces, rims curve inwards, and bowls are relatively short. In southern provinces, the walls stand almost straight, while bowls themselves are relatively tall.<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 />

A wide, shallow wooden bowl used for pounding large amounts of rice.<br />
<br />
This large bowl (<em>hamji</em> ) was made by cutting a large, single piece of wood along the grain, then hollowing it out. It follows traditional form and style, but it has adz marks and traces of smoothing the surface by scorching with fire. This item appears not to be the work of an expert, but a homemade item. The brim is thin in comparison to the overall width and depth.
