Joseon Dynasty Northern Korea White Slip Teabowl


A teabowl fired in the middle to late Joseon dynasty. It rises straight from the sides of the base, rounded hip, and the rim is everted. The white slip is applied to the base clay and covered in a transparent glaze. The rough brown clay resembles Hoeryong-gun, North Hamgyong Province, but the area often uses an opaque white glaze, so this piece may have been made in another northern region.

The colours and craquelure are tasteful, and the unglaze spots on the lip during firing are also a highlight. Come with an old box labelled “Chosen Kohiki Chawan”.
