Why this is a
Masterpiece

Its solid shape represents a typical Buncheong ware from the Joseon period. The Sgraffito or Bakji design is achieved by first coating the surface and then carving out the background areas surrounding the motifs, creating a striking contrast between the white glaze and the blue-gray clay body. White earth covers the area from the neck to the lower part of the body. Even though the border between the part where white earth is applied and the part where white earth is not applied is very irregular, it still highlights lively and natural characteristics of Buncheong ware.

History of the Object
The techniques and style of Buncheong matured during the reign of King Sejong (r.1418-1450) and reached its apex in the years between 1450 and 1470. During this period, Buncheong ware with Sgrafitto designs was actively produced.
