Behind the apparent simplicity of colour and form lies a complex philosophy and textured place in Korea's long ceramic history. The Moon Jar was the definition of beauty in 17th-century Korea and attests to a Joseon aesthetic sensibility that appreciated naturalism and spontaneity over rigid perfection. Something in the essence of this vessel continually fascinates potters. There is mutual respect for the technical accomplishment and artistry of the unknown craftsman, from the precarious balance of the form, the detail of the rim and the sensuality of the curve to the perfection of the imperfection. 

Moon Jars, due to their size, were traditionally made by joining two hemispherical halves. Recognised as a unique form gaining an almost mythological status spanning history and continents, this enigmatic jar has throughout its history continually inspired translations. We present our translation of this classic piece, a contemporary reworking of the form, smaller in scale and thrown in one piece on the wheel. A pot of certainty, paradox and always slightly imperfect - the Moon Jar truly is a contemplative object. 

Size ‘Display’ (210MM) in the colour Celadon Edition. Sold separately.
