Pottery Cake Plate with Buncheong White Ripe Barley Design
This unique Buncheong pottery cake plate is elegantly decorated with a ripe barley design. The contrast between the white barley design and the brown background creates a wonderful harmony. Buncheong porcelain (14th to 16th century) is characterized by uniquely bold designs deviated from the aesthetic traditions of celadon and white porcelain. Buncheong's unconventional dynamic expressions, nonfigurative composition and variety of abstract designs appeals to modern tastes, displaying the quintessential natural beauty of Korean pottery.
