Styles & Periods
Korean Ceramics

The peninsula of North and South Korea has historically been the political and cultural conveyor between Japan and China, the two great powers surrounding it. Despite the intermingled language, history and people, Korea has native artistic traditions that influenced its neighbors. Perhaps the most important of these accomplishments is Korean porcelain and earthenware. In the 12th century, during the Koryo period, Korean potters began producing celadon wares. The distinctive bluish green glazes and incised designs captivated Chinese collectors, who declared celadon one of the ten wonders of the world. Another distinguishing feature of celadon is the form and shape of the vessels. Koryo pieces are considered masterpieces by merit of the marriage of form and function alone. The proximity of the Korean peninsula and the Nagasaki area of Japan encouraged great migrations of artisans to settle in Japan. With them they brought their remarkable stoneware technologies. The Japanese were smitten with the pottery of the Korean artists, and adopted much of it into their own growing traditions, culminating in the highly ritualized Tea Ceremony of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

Latest Product Reviews

I absolutely love these bags! I use them to protect my prints at art fairs & gallery shows. They protect my prints from environmental dirt and oil from fingertips - and they have the added bonus of making the presentation of my prints look professional and put- together. They're easy to seal, and can be unsealed multiple times without losing their ability to close. I highly recommend these!

I've been using this product for years and so far have not had any problems. I love being able to buy it in bulk and not in those tiny canisters. (I have one canister with the lid-brush that I refill.) I've also never had a problem with the rubber cement in the big can drying out.

Be very sure you have selected the colors/ pattern you will be using. Have found push molds are not very tolerant. I have read in numerous places that a thin coating of cornstarch for easy clay removal will help. This doesn't work for me(tried different molds). The result is film on piece that I need to then use thin paint brush to remove. Anxious for suggestion, as I find this very time consuming.
