Joseon Dynasty Kuro-Korai Type Black Glazed Teabowl


A black glazed teabowl fired in the early Joseon dynasty. It has a Tenmoku bowl-like shape with an indented lip. The modest glaze surface shows the fine mottled patterns and the contrasting colour of the front and back of the firing process. This is an example of “Kuro-Korai (Black Korean ware)” that applied iron glaze over the thin base glaze, significantly indicated by the glaze layer on the inside of the footring. A tasteful teabowl expresses the dignified silence.

It has been well used, and the colour is deepened in parts, such as around the unglazed spots. A hairline about 3cm on the lip is covered by resin. It comes with a box.
