Joseon Dynasty Hoeryong Ware Opaque White Glazed Teabowl


A tea bowl made in Hoeryong-gun or Myeongcheon-gun, North Hamgyong Province in the late Joseon Dynasty. It has a morning glory shape, which is rare in the area’s ware, and the thickly applied opaque white glaze shows soft vermillion colour partly. It is pointed out that the pottery of the area is related to Karatsu ware, but there is a record that wood ash was used in contrast to Madara Karatsu and Chosen Karatsu, which use straw ash. However, the glaze material has not yet been evidenced.

There is a lot of gravel in the clay, and it has pinholes, but there is no water leakage. Apart from two minor chips on the rim, there are no other notable defects, and in good condition.
