The Rustic Beauty of Buncheong Ceramics
Beginning in the early Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910), unrestrained and rustic Buncheong ceramic wares offered an alternative aesthetic to the elegant royal celadon tradition in Korea. Join Docent Myoung-ja Kwon as she examines the techniques used to produce this ceramic made for all, and how contemporary ceramists continue the tradition.
ABOUT TAKEOUT TUESDAYS
