Label:
In the early twelfth century Korean potters invented the sanggam inlay technique seen on this bowl. To produce sanggam inlay, a decoration unique to celadon wares, designs are incised into the clay and then filled with white or red slip (liquid clay). The vessel is then covered with a translucent celadon glaze before firing. When fired, the white and red clay slip creates white and black contrasting motifs under the glaze.
