Catalogue Description:
From "Korean Art Collection in the Brooklyn Museum" catalogue: This vase shows features that are typical of maebyeong vases: a broad shoulder and a small mouth. The body is decorated with a cloud design painted with white slip. Considering that few celadon maebyeong were decorated using this slip painting technique, experts believe that it was made before the inlaying technique was developed. The foot is of the concave base type and has five refractory clay marks from kiln stacking. The shape of the vase, the cloud design on the surface, and the techniques used for decoration reveal that it was made in the twelfth century.
