A KOREAN RIBBED STONEWARE STORAGE JAR

Korea, Yi period 16th/17th century

 

With a cream-whitish crackled glaze and ribbed bottom.

 

H.45 cm

Note:
This storage jar with the rings around its lower part, was probably not made on a potters wheel but by coiling. This way the jar is made in a stationary position by building up and shaping walls from the bottom up around a base disc and gaining height by adding coils and kneading them together by tapping gently with a “paddle”, a concave mallet. In the present jar the mallet apparently was not concave but flat. Faceted jars are not uncommon in Korean porcelain (see: G.St.G.M. Gompertz, Korean pottery & porcelain of the Yi period, Faber & Faber London 1968)
