Why this is a
Masterpiece

The vessel has a layer of white slip applied to its surface, leaving traces of swiftly rendered brushstrokes through which the clay underneath can be seen. The sparsely decorated upper portion of the vessel, with its three incised lines, draws attention to the lively main band, in which two fish, one with fins and the other with an arabesque design on its body, are presented alternately between two lotus designs. The translucent glaze has a brownish-white tint and has no crackle. The sturdy foot flares out slightly, and there are sand spur-marks on the base.

History of the Object
Fish were a favorite motif on wine bottles of this shape and, as exemplified by this piece, were often stylized and depicted with strong, bold lines. This bottle, with flared mouth and full body, is an outstanding example of a buncheong ware with underglaze iron ornament produced at the kilns at Mt. Gyeryong.
