White wares from the earlier Koryo Dynasty are rare, and most examples found in Korea were imported from China. However, by the late Choson Dynasty both decorated and plain white wares were produced and highly sought after for ritual as well as domestic use. The aesthetic of plain, undecorated white porcelain appealed largely to the Korean elite enamored of Confucian and Buddhist ideas which promoted austerity, simplicity and purity. Whatever the Chinese intellectual or ideological influence ...click for details
