Description

Subject Matter:

It is presumed to be made in Gangjin Kiln. Gangjin is the representative area producing the Goryeo celadon. This place is regarded to the most important area to study Goryeo celadon. Korean government designated this area as the historic site.

Physical Description:

The bowl has a low, narrow foot, and diagonally aring out sides. It is decorated with raised designs on the inner wall, but they are so low relief that it is di cult to recognize what they are. The outer base retains three quartzite spur marks. Damage to a side of the mouth rim and the center of the bowl has been repaired.

It flares out widely at the rim, then back in. Its sides, otherwise almost straight, taper to the base. There is no decorated.
