Joseon Dynasty Kuro-Korai Type Black Glazed Teabowl


A black glazed teabowl fired in the early Joseon dynasty. Exhibiting a low centre of gravity Tenmoku bowl shape characterized by an indented lip, the entire surface, including the inside of the foot, is coated with a rich black glaze. The slightly glossy matte texture enhances the intensity of the black, and the brown lip resembles an annular eclipse. This teabowl represents an exemplary “Kuro-Korai (Black Korean ware)” with remarkable inherent depth and a sense of antiquity with the heirloom.

The surface exhibits traces of firing deposits that have been removed, and there is a small chip inside the foot. It is accompanied by a Shifuku drawstring pouch and is housed in an old box, albeit missing the string.
