Did You Know?

The translucent greenish and bluish glaze of Goryeo celadons, shown in this vase, is the result of distinctive small and long Korean kilns, which maintained a low oxygen saturation with a high level of carbon dioxide.


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 handsome wine bottle, to make their drinking experience more exciting.
