Joseon Dynasty Hoeryong Ware One Handled Bowl


A One-handled bowl baked in Hoeryong-gun, North Hamgyong Province, in the latter half of the Joseon Dynasty. It has a handle shape often found in Jurchen household miscellaneous goods.

The glaze accumulated inside the bowl is probably due to the kiln structure of Hoeryong. From the beautiful bluish kiln effect, it can be found the origin of the straw ash glaze, which is often used in Japanese Karatsu ware and other Mingei pottery.

Many of these bowls have a carbonized base due to their use, but this piece is in extremely good condition. There are no defects other than minor flaws during the kiln process.
