Joseon Dynasty Buncheong Ware Muji-Hakeme Type Bowl


A Buncheong ware bowl fired in the early Joseon dynasty. It is commonly known as “Dumbung” in Korea and “Muji Hakeme” or “Muan Kohiki” in Japan, which is applied with the dipping technique of soaking the front face in the slip. The name Muan Kohiki is derived from the fact that most of this type was produced in Muan-gun in the western part of Jeollanam-do, but similar pottery sherds have also been found at kiln sites in other areas, such as Jangheung County. The appeal of this piece is the soft contrast between the slightly reddish-white clay and the pale blue-grey. Despite the tendency for Muji Hakeme bowls to show signs of ageing, this piece maintains a clean surface, making it suitable for everyday use.

The rim has been restored with Kintsugi, although most of the gold has peeled off. There are no other noticeable defects, and the condition is generally good.
