Goryeo Dynasty 918-1392

Goryeo Dynasty ceramics display a more developed and refined sence of form.  The following two examples are of the unglazed stoneware type with a natural ash glaze deposited from the firing.  Ceramics from the period such as these are largely under represented and researched due to the development of celadon glazing during this time.

 The Goryeo Dynasty Marks the beginning of celadon glaze technique.  Later in this era the inclusion of inlaid, colored slip into carved decoration came into use.  By the beginning of the tenth century the Koreans had imported celadon from the Chinese Yue Dynasty and production reached its peak by the beginning of the 12th century.
