Baekja - A Story of Korean Porcelain
Open from 20 May to 15 August 2021, Baekja - A Story of Korean Porcelain features both antique and contemporary porcelain pieces.
Together with celadon and buncheong, white porcelain is one of the three main ceramic traditions in Korean culture. Although a small quantity of true, hard-paste porcelain had been produced during the Goryeo dynasty (918-1392), it was the potters of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1897) who, having been influenced by Yuan and Ming porcelain from China, began to produce white porcelain pieces in significant quantities. Porcelain went on to become the chosen material for royal ceramics due to its extraordinary beauty.
