A tall glazed and speckled gray porcelain offering dish for an altar. The base is a wide, slightly tapered cylinder which widens at the top into a shallow dish. At the bottom of the base as well as a circle on the top of the dish there is some discoloration and morphing of the ceramic, most likely through use.<br />

The upper surface of this vessel features a circle with the Chinese character &quot;je (祭: ancestral rite)&quot; rendered inside in cobalt blue pigment. The tray features blemishes, while the rims show traces of use. The foot retains traces of coarse sand supports stuck to it during firing. This type of ritual vessel has been excavated from the upper sediment layers of waste deposits of kilns in front of what is now Bunwon-ri Elementary School in Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do. Such vessels are presumed to have been produced immediately before the Bunwon-ri kiln cloised down and to have been widely supplied to the general public.&nbsp;<br />

15th century
Gift of Stephen H. and Patricia O. Spurr from the Henry Jewett Greene Collection
This is a ritual dish assumed to have been produced at the private kiln near Bunwon-ri to supply the general pulic. The dish is deeper than the most other ritual vessels produced at the official court kilns, while the diameter of the mouth is small in relation to the maximum diameter of the foot. The clay and glaze are well fused. However, the the glazed surface has darkened due to the contamination by large amounts of ash. The base of the foot shows many traces of coarse sand supports. This type of ritual vessel with high foot is unique and simple in form that it was one of the Joseon ceramic vessels that was widely sought after by Western collectors.<br />

The rim is painted in underglaze blue and yellow with plant and floral motifs that are arranged in a whimsical, asymmetrical fashion around the edge. The well is decorated with similar vegetal motifs and two vaguely stork-like birds with long legs that confront one another on a strip of turf.

Transfer from the College of Architecture and Design
This maiolica dish is covered by a radial pattern consisting of abstract leaves and curling tendrils punctuated with flowers all centered around a yellow disk in the center of the well. The harmony of the design stems from radial symmetry of the pattern as well as the restricted palette of blue and a soft brass-yellow.
