Pottery: Korean Traditional Handicrafts
Ewha Womans University Press, 2006 - 151 pagina's
Pottery has the longest and strongest tradition in Korean ceramics, continuing from prehistoric times to the present. But it has not been given the attention it deserves because the history of Korean ceramics is focused on porcelain. This book takes a close look at pottery, the most commonly used type of vessel in the everyday life of Koreans, dividing it into two major categories: unglazed pottery, from comb-patterned earthenware to modern day puredok and glazed pottery, from the wares of Gurim-ri kiln to onggi. It shows that Korean pottery vessels, though rather overlooked in history, have a simple beauty that makes them valuable works of art.
