An interesting bowl dating from the Goryeo (or Koryo) dynasty (918-1392).

The wobbling shape, scars from the firing and finely crackled glaze are features that make this bowl a very attractive vessel. They point to a humble beginning yet give the vessel nobility in the Japanese world of wabi-sabi, where age, its marks and harmonious imperfections are revered.

Another fine example of the beauty of classic vessels made in Korea during the Goryeo dynasty (918-1392)...

A sublime chawan (tea bowl) dating from the middle of the Joseon (or Choson) dynasty (1392-1897).

This is a tamago-de style vessel; the appellation coming from the aspect of the glaze (and sometimes the shape of the bowl), resembling the texture of an egg (tamago, in Japanese).

This kind of chawan were very much in favor with the tea masters and practitioners of the Japanese tea ceremony of the Momoyama period (1573-1615) and early Edo period (1615-1868)...

In my humble opinion, great Mishima bowls are few and far between, but this particular one, dating from the first part of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1897), is truly exceptional. It is in very good condition considered its age, and the play of different shades on the finely crackled white and celadon glazes make it a very attractive vessel. It is a sublime example of the genre.

Mishima is the Japanese name for this kind of pottery decorated with a white slip, covered by a pale-bluish glaze...
