Event Details

Korea is well-known for its exquisite workmanship in ceramics, especially for innovations such as celadon bisaek glaze. The artistic characteristics of subdued and simple beauty resulting from underglaze decoration techniques have been noted as quintessentially Asian.

In this lecture, Dr. Carolyn Choo will discuss her lifetime research on traditional Korean ceramics from a scientific, cultural and historical perspective. Innumerable kiln sites all over the country reveal the extent of the vast amount of ceramic activity in traditional Korea. Shards of broken dishes and other ceramic products, excavated in the kiln sites and analyzed for their composition and microstructure, reveal many details of the forming, decorating, and firing methods of ceramic technology.
