Why this is a
Masterpiece

If we compare Korean bowls from the 13th to the 17th centuries with early Japanese works, we see very clearly the great influence on the further development of Japanese tea ceramics. This Korean bowl from the late 16th century was restored in Japan with black lacquer.

History of the Object
Korean bowls were of great significance for the Japanese tea ceremony. Originally used as bowls for rice or other foods, their irregular glazes and simple forms—compliant with the principle of “hidden beauty”—made them appropriate utensils for the tea ceremony.
