Description

Physical Description:

With a slightly flared thick rim, this bowl was produced at a regional kiln. Bowls or dishes were generally produced in three different standard sizes: large, medium, and small. This one belongs to the medium size. Clay body is exposed on the foot, with coarse sand stuck to its rim. This is a lowquality object, on which the glaze ran downwards, resulting in an uneven surface, but its soft texture due to the lack of sheen is what distinguishes Josoen white porcelain from Chinese or Japanese white porcelain.
