Did You Know?

This pedestaled earthenware may have been used for ritual offerings to ancestors.


This pedestaled earthenware was a product of closed kilns built on hillsides, which became widely used for producing this type of pottery vessel in Korea during the Three Kingdoms period. Both its gray color and shimmering glaze are the result of the reduction of oxygen in the closed kiln chamber. Due to its relatively tall pedestal, this vessel may have been used for more for ritual settings than everyday use.
