Goryeo Celadon Teabowl


A celadon teabowl fired in the Goryeo dynasty. An excellent example from the 11th century indicates the influence of Yue ware celadon. The neat morning glory-shaped body is fully covered with beautiful celadon glaze and has a characteristic ring-shaped base called ‘haemurigup’.

In Goryeo, along with the development of tea culture and Buddhism, the production of celadon teabowls began around the 10th century. This piece has a rare colouration among early celadon, which tends to have a rice colour. This bowl’s striking clear bluish green, regarded as perfect for drinking dark brick tea, is comparable to the jade-coloured celadon completed later in Gangjin and Buan. Another good point is that the size is about the right size for tea, whereas the later period works tend to be larger. The captivating well must enhance the tea experience.

There is soil adhered to the base, and a hairline extended from the rim is covered with excellent Kintsugi. Other than kiln scratches, there are no noticeable defects. It comes with a labelled box.
