Buncheong Celadon
If the style of Celadon has the luxury and purified characteristic and while porocelain has tempered brevity in the changed history of porcelain, Buncheong Celadon appeared between the two styles has relatively free and purified informality compared to Celadon or while procelain.
Buncheong Celadon has the characteristics of transitional period which are appeared in the process that a style is converted into another. However, Buncheong Celadon of Korea was now a style of transitional period but created a new esthetics and style between Celadon and white porcelain through existence for about 200 years from 15th Century to 16 Century Characteristics of Buncheong Celadon are not considered to have no relationship with the temper of Koreans who value intuitional and emotional process rather than rational and clear result. It is apparent that Koreans prefer warm compassion rather than cold rationality and value dynamic vitality rather than unified frame. Buncheong Celadon has something in common with the property of Koreans in the respect that unified frame is denied and vitality living in imperfection is sought for. Such property of Koreans meets the characteristics required by ceramic art.
Buncheong Celadon is a very important area. It is the inheritance of our culture that shows an side of the essence of Korean beauty and modernity also, and broad-mind with no decline to detailed matters and silent irregularity, and the taste of freedom and broad-mine is the esthetics of Buncheong Celadon.
This should be a spiritual matrix of art we have to promote. In addition, it is needed to feel the sense of beauty and to use it in daily lives.
