To make a Buncheong ware, first the shape is made using taeto (clay) and the clay body is covered with a layer of baekto (white clay). Then, the surface is decorated with drawings, patterns and carvings.
It is then glazed and baked. Buncheong Ceramics are known for their rough but unrestrained, lively, folksy and highly artistic style.
* The abstract designs and patterns of Buncheong Ceramics are similar to those in modern abstract work and Buncheong is the most preferred type of ceramics among potters.
