Pretty Pottery

“Poetry in Clay: Korean Buncheong Ceramics from Leeum” is a major new special exhibition at the Asian Art Museum, replacing the popular Bali show. Today’s Buncheong Symposium digs deep into the history and significance of this pale, printed form of functional sculpture. Kim Youngwon from the National Research Institute of Korea and Drs. John Duncan and Robert Mowry provide background, including a discussion of buncheong’s relationship to its famous predecessor, celadon. Bringing the conversation into the present, Kyungja Hwang (who’s done major studies in Seoul and New York City) discusses the effects on contemporary Korean artists, especially potters; the museum’s own Korean art curator Hyonjeong Kim Han moderates.
