Museum purchase for the James Marshall Plumer Memorial Collection
The mouth is straight. The side is gently curved to the bottom. The foot is hgh and narrow. It was repaired.<br />
<br />
Produced between the 15th and 16th century at a privately owned kiln in the southwestern region of Gyeongsangnam-do, this bowl has been restored following breakage into ten pieces. Its rim curves inwards. It is made with stoneware clay. There are five spur marks on the inner base, and the glaze on the rim of its foot has been wiped away. It is coated with opaque white glaze, on which have formed many crackles and pinholes. The color of glaze is not even throughout the surface. Vessels of this type were popular in Japan as tea bowls (茶碗, Jap. chawan).<br />

<p>This bowl exemplifies early-tenth century celadon forms influenced by Chinese Yue ware. It has a halo-shaped foot (haemurigup), a characteristic of Yue ware. It is a high-quality celadon made from fine clay, coated by highly transparent glaze. Surface is plain while displaying crackles on its inner surface and parts of its outer surface. Many similar vessels were excavated from the Kilns no. 9 and no. 10 at Yongun-ri, Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do. Refractory spur marks created during firing remain in five places on the rim of the foot.<br />

stoneware with celadon glaze
2 5/16 x 6 1/16 x 6 1/16 in. (5.8 x 15.3 x 15.3 cm)
Gift of Bruce and Inta Hasenkamp and Museum purchase made possible by Elder and Mrs. Sang-Yong Nam
Stoneware ewer with celadon glaze in the shape of a calabash, or double-gourd. The handle mimics the tendrils of the gourd. A long, thin spout curves slightly outward from the rounded base, and a small lid crested by a tendril-like loop covers an opening at the top of the ewer.
<p>This is an undecorated gould-shaped ewer. Its stopper, handle joints, handle, and spout show traces of repair and restoration. The at base retains four refractory spur marks and was glazed only in the center of the outer base. The glaze was not fused well in parts, leaving some runnings, but it is well balanced in form.<br />
