Did you know?

The crackle pattern that appears all over this bowl was caused by a thermal expansion mismatch between the body and the glaze.


As early as the seventh century, the practice of drinking tea and wine became an important part of elite culture in Korea. Elites of the Goryeo period commissioned a variety of types of utensils and vessels including this large bowl paired with a shallow saucer, to make their drinking experience more exciting.
