Fine Korean Pottery Footed Jar with Long Neck Silla Period

$ 3,600
  • Description
    A stoneware jar of bulbous form with a long neck supported by open-work foot dated from Silla, Three Kingdoms period (57 BCE-668 AD). The grey color vessel is of a classic type found as burial objects in the capital city of Gyeongju, in nowadays Southern tip of the Korean Peninsula. The jar features a long neck with finely incised geometrical waved patterns often between raised circumventing ridged lines. The foot features open work with rudimental cutouts. The upper part of the jar and the foot are covered with a thin yellow ash glaze with textures and some prominent splashed residual pattern displays on one side. The piece has many small, bulged areas within its wall and this was likely resulted from the imperfect kiln firing with the small air pockets in the clay, adding a Wabi Sabi sensibility to the piece.
    For similar jars, see collection in the Metropolitan Musuem of Art 1997.34.11. Asian Art Musuem in San Francisco B60P2216.
