Korean Influences in Japanese Ceramics

February 17, 1984 – November 11, 1984

Museum: Freer Gallery of Art

Location: Gallery 3

Some 25 objects from the Freer's ceramics collection examine the enduring appeal in Japan of Punch'ong ware--Korean ceramics introduced in the 16th century. Focusing on Japanese ceramics from the Momoyama (1568-1615) and Edo (1615-1868) periods that feature several Korean techniques of applying slip to dark-bodied wares, the exhibition also includes several Korean prototypes from the Yi dynasty (1392-1910).
