Joseon Dynasty Hoeryong Ware Kohiki Type Tea Bowl


A white slip tea bowl that would have been fired during the middle of the Joseon dynasty. It was probably crafted in Hoeryong, North Hamgyong Province, inferring from its coarse brown clay. However, it is rarely seen using the white-slip technique in the region rather than white glaze.

The shape is like making a straight line from the side of the foot, changes from a stepped waist to a rounded contour and the rim is curved outwards. Since many points match the Komogai Chawan, including the production area, this was also made as a tea bowl, not a tableware bowl.

In addition, the stains and smouldering, crackle glaze that has been coloured by the inheritance, the unglazed parts on the rim that occurs during firing are highlights of this Chawan. Comes with the old box labelled “Chosen Kohiki Chawan”.
