Joseon Dynasty Black Glazed Vase with Faceted Design


A black-glazed vase fired in the late Joseon dynasty. In the Qing dynasty, many Song-influenced ceramics were intensely made during the Qianlong period (1735 to 1795). Since then, this long-necked turnip-shaped vase had been produced more than before in Korea, which had a tributary relationship with the Qing dynasty. This piece has a faceted design, and the width of the facets is unequal because the shaving method is not accurate, giving a rustic and simple taste. The blackish amber glaze is filled with a deep lustre, creating a profound look like smoked wood carving.

There is a kiln crack around the base, but it is repaired with resin, and there is no leakage.
