Han Collection would like to invite you to the exhibition ‘Cross the Timeline: Korean Ceramics’ during the Asian Art in London.

The exhibition is displaying the various types of ceramics across the Goryeo (918-1392) and the Joseon (1392-1897) dynasties of Korea. The green celadon with the auspicious symbols during the Goryeo period represents the profound association with the Buddhism. From the Joseon dynasty, the abstract and experimental methods of Buncheong ceramics indicated that the endeavour of Joseon ceramists to innovate the new style of ceramic. With the introduction of Neo-Confucianism, the white porcelain was considered as the emblem of the culture of Joseon scholars. The exquisite quality and the cultural value of Korean ceramics will heighten the excitement of the exhibition.
