Beautiful bowl, B.
Good article. There will always be exceptions to the common techniques as Arthur posits.

Hi TO, I intended to say that you were correct about the slip and the fragility of the glaze, without splitting hairs about the term buncheon, which I don't know all the nuances. As I said, the description of the seller was Kohiki (Hagi with light colored slip). I do not know the native Korean term for this, and in fact might not be a correct understanding either based on the articles above.

Image

It doesn't bear a lot of commonality to Kohiki made in Hagi today, so, forgive me for being a little unconcerned with terminology. You'll know the right one when you see it :)

One item of note is that the older piece was very dull when it arrived. After a few weeks of use it has an unmistakable shine. Same for my first Korai chawan.

Mr. F, can't wait to join my French pen pals at your well appointed table.
:D
I would really appreciate a Teachat gathering around my table. Talking and sharing through a blog is a nice thing but it cannot even slightly be as interesting as a teapot brewed in person.

I've been thinking on how we could have this sort of gathering but it seems quite difficult (and sadly rather expensive). I think you guys from the US have less difficulties meeting together but given the oceans that separate most teachatters it's going to be hard having europeans, americans, asians all together in a same place :(

But if you come around here, please come in and we'll share a cup...or two.

As I've suggested already, I would send photos to Arthur Park and ask his opinion as to the origin of the bowl. He is a good student of this type of work and I think he would offer a well thought out reply because of his technical knowledge and interest in this period. I'd love to know, too!

I haven't visited Teachat for such a long time and forgot about my posting. I use to live in Korea and living in Vancouver now. So I know Korea and Korean culture. But the celadon teaset I posted is pretty common product in Korea. Unfortunately, potteries made by artists are pretty expensive(at least $300 commonly).
I have to visit Teachat often. Sorry for late reply.

This is what teaware ready to be fired looks like at Seong il's kiln.

Just received my first piece of Korean teaware. :mrgreen:

I honestly don't know much about Korean tea bowls, but I'm enjoying learning and researching at the moment. I decided to purchase this Ido style chawan/dawan simply because it was love at first sight and it was affordable. When I normally fall in love with a chawan, the price tag is usually at least $500 and up, and I can only dream. Brandon has a great intro to Ido chawan on his blog here, and there is another frequently linked blog post here too.

I've been told this is likely from the turn of the 1900's, but if that's incorrect please let me know. I'm really looking forward to using this and seeing the patina grow and change. If anyone can translate the calligraphy on the box, I'd be very grateful!
