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...

A Japanese Gold Splashed Bronze GU Form Vase. Taisho Period (circa 1910-20). Inspired by the distant rather than recent past, this strikingly modernist Japanese bronze embodies a rejection of European-influenced and over-decorated bronzes of the previous Meiji period. The base bears a three-character studio mark, written in stylized archaistic Chinese characters much in vogue with the literati class of China and Japan during the Early Republic and Taisho periods...

A LARGE KOREAN BLUE & WHITE URN OF THE LATE CHOSON DYNASTY. Circa 1880. A perfectly proportioned, classical Asian jar form, decorated in a distinctly Korean style blending folk art idioms with borrowings from traditional Chinese painting for a particularly dramatic interpretation of the Three Friends of Winter: pine, prunus and bamboo. The fullness of the wide body allows for spacious decoration, and a masterful use of the blank space between the three friends. A lovely, thick white glaze wi...
