Joseon Dynasty Large Tokkuri

"Daitokuri (large sake server" of Mishima.
It is a simple technique of filling white clay in the hollow that rolled this cord, which you could also call it Jomon technique, but due to the fact that the cord was pressed many times, a slight waviness occurred at each step, which gave a really nice look to the surface. (Top image)

And although it might be hard to tell in the image, but this daitokuri is extremely strong as a pottery. It is well-handled and fired, but the dignity and power are much better than that.
I really liked that feeling and actually enjoyed it for a while at home.

This is unlikely to be my arbitrary opinion, and the same industry and customers are "strong" to different sounds (laugh).
By the way, Mr. Hiramoto, who I admit as a teacher of Korean ceramics, once said that the strength of Lee Dynasty was "(Unfortunately) Japanese pottery could not finally have such strength ...". I remember

As you know, today's masterpieces of Joseon Dynasty are difficult to obtain unless specialized in dealing with them, and I can not handle very authentic products, but it is still easy if you change your viewpoint and see it with your own eyes. It seems that there are also Joseon ware to enjoy.

By the way, it seems that the famous Mishima ewer of Seikado Bunko or Nezu Museum were made by cutting the lower half of Daitokuri and customizing the lid.
