A tall glazed and speckled porcelain offering dish for an altar. The base is a narrow and sharply tapered cylinder which meets an angular bottom of a dish. The dish itself is wide and shallow.<br />
<br />
This vessel built from low quality clay and is coated with a blue-green-tinted glaze, giving it a pale green-brown tone overall. Coarse sand is stuck to the foot rim. The tray is contaminated by many impurities and iron spots. The vessel was produced at a regional kiln.<br />

A glazed porcelain offering dish for an altar. The base is a narrow tapered cylinder with a ridged pattern on it. On top of it is a wide and shallow dish.<br />
<br />
This white porcelain ritual vessel is a product of a regional kiln. The foot has a hendecagonal cross-section, while the tray is wide in relation to the foot. The iron-rich clay tinged the vessel with green-brown, while the large amounts of sand contained in the clay formed a rough texture. The foot retains traces of sand supports in eight places. Glaze on the reverse side of the vessel has crawled in parts, revealing the clay body and producing many flaws.<br />

These are modern pieces thrown on a semi-manual wheel. Their shoulders are decorated with simple designs in underglaze cobalt blue, which is a result of Japanese influence.

Objects of this this type were produced in Cheongsong-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do.<br />

A small glazed porcelain piece resembling a cake stand. It has a wide top with a smaller and round vertical base. The top is detailed with a carved pattern that would imprint the rice cake being molded on it.<br />
<br />
Rice cake stamps are used to impress designs upon rice cakes. They are generally made of wood or ceramic. Ceramic rice cake stamps normally come in the form of round stamps and consist of a patterned surface and a handle. Patterns, carved or raised, on the stamp vary from geometric lines to auspicious designs that wish for prosperity and longevity. Their small size makes them highly portable, while their simple yet contemporary designs have mad them popular among collectors. The University of Michigan Museum of Art collection includes nine white porcelain rice cake stamps. Some are gifts from Mr. and Mrs. Hasenkamp, and others are gifts from Ok Ja Chang and the Chang family.<br />

Burial wares are those placed in tombs as a way of praying for the continued happiness and comfort of the deceased in the afterlife. Offering vessels produced in the Joseon period included smaller reproductions of the vessels used every day, such as jars, boxes, and bowls, among others. The University of Michigan Museum of Art houses a set of white porcelain offering vessels buried in pit graves between the late 16th century and early 17th century. The vessels are coated in pale blue glaze but generally tinged with gray. They were fired without using saggers, while resting on fine sand supports. Their glaze is relatively well applied and fused. The cintamani-shaped knobs on the lids are similar to those found on the lids of vessels produced at white porcelain kilns near Seondong-ri and Songjeong-ri in Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do in the 17th century.<br />
