The pounding technique (tanal in Korean) on the surface strengthened the clay body.

Description

Closed kilns built on hillsides 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. The pounding technique (tanal in Korean) on the surface strengthened the clay body, leaving behind a geometric pattern.
