Korean Buncheong ceramic box by Lee Jaewon


A box in the purest Korean Buncheong tradition, with its slender, flared base and recessed lid.

This ceramic is made from dark porcelain clay and white slip (slip is a coloured coating applied to the ceramic before firing to cover the natural colour). Without any other decoration, this technique shows the full beauty of the ceramic, between strength and lightness, and its delicate, slightly crackled pattern.

This piece is the work of Lee Jaewon, a Korean ceramist who regularly exhibits in South Korean galleries, and who reinterprets traditions to anchor them in our contemporary lives.

It can be used as a box to store a few treasures or as a container for soup, which stays hot thanks to its lid (which is its primary use).

Please note that this is a unique piece.
