Joseon Dynasty Hoeryong Ware Handled Bowl


A 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, and the straw ash glaze on the ansate is presumed to strengthen.

Sea cucumber glaze from the same area is said to have descended from the Jun ware, but there is no evidence that the Jun kiln-type technique was used in northeastern China, and it is possibly transmitted from south China by sea route. Further research on the spread of sea cucumber glaze, including its relationship with Karatsu ware, Hobashira kiln is awaited.

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