Buncheong Ware and White Porcelain Gallery
The shape of this buncheong prunus vase was inspired by the celadon prunus vases produced in the late Goryeo Dynasty, but the design explicitly demonstrates the liveliness and boldness typical of buncheong wares. A swimming fish and a crane paddling between large lotus flowers are inlaid in black and white. The legs of the crane are short, resembling those of a duck, while the body of the fish is upside down as if floating in the air, showing the unconventional new style that became apparent in buncheong ware.
