This pottery vessel served to contain cremated remains, indicating the popularity of Buddhist mortuary practice in Korea during the Three Kingdoms period.
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 built on hillsides.
