Gaya Pottery Vessel | Korea, 3-5C

¥30,000 (tax included)

A round-bottomed stoneware crucible. It must have been burned as a ritual vessel in Gaya confederacy during the Three Kingdoms period at Korean peninsula. The sharp rise from the torso and the single line pattern around it give an extremely sophisticated impression. Gaya pottery originates from Chinese Cai Tao (ash pottery), but the shape of the pottery has the peninsula’s specific aesthetic sense.

Even after Gaya was merged into Silla, the potters continued to produce pottery (Silla pottery), while the potters who migrated to the Japanese archipelago made Sue pottery. That is why Sue pottery is very similar to pottery on the peninsula, and in fact, the same type of pottery as this one has been excavated in Japan.

It is orbiously a mistake to see the Korean Peninsula as a mere bridge for cultural transmission between China and Japan. There was a unique culture that was different from any other, which surely savored and sublimated the culture of the continent.

There are some small chips on the rim, but the condition is generally good. Many of the crucible do not stand on their own because they are placed on the instrument stand, but this one has a flat bottom and stands on its own.
