I absolutely love the products that I purchase from MrArt. The selection is wonderful and I am able to find things that are unavailable to me in the stores.

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.

It's so pretty. I'm using it on a valance for a bedroom window and in my art journal. It would be great for a little girls room as a strip around the ceiling or for many things.

I've had these brushes for awhile and can say they are the best brushes I have ever owned. I have been painting for a long time and have had brushes considered top of the line. I've tried a lot of them, and most have been a so-so feeling. Nothing really stood out. When I got these, the first thing I noticed was the balance. There is a feeling of great balance on these. The brush stands up to a lot, and is a real workhorse. They are go to brushes for straight lines and precision. The Dakotas are brushes that just don't disappoint.

Other than the few that kept breaking as I was sharpening them, I was impressed with the vibrant colors & how they went on so smoothly.
