Korea adopted paper-making from China, along with Buddhism, in the 4th century CE. The most common material for paper-making in Korea is paper mulberry. Korean paper, called hanji, had a staggering number of uses in traditional Korean life; paper hats, umbrellas, cups, envelopes, and boxes were all common. This box, likely used as a sewing box, is decorated with auspicious symbols. #artsofkorea #한국미술

Lovely piece; fascinating process #Repost @brooklynmuseum with @get_repost
In the 13th century, Korean potters developed a distinctive method for decorating celadon ceramics. Shallow incisions were cut into the light gray body of the vessel and then filled with white or black clay. After polishing, the decorations remained flush with the surface, as if they had been painted on. The whole piece was then covered with celadon glaze and fired. The new technique was likely inspired by metalwork of the period, in which bronze and other alloys were inlaid with silver and gold. #artsofkorea #한국미술 ⠀⠀

Contemporary and historical material on display together on the new Korean Galleries at the Brooklyn Museum. Nam June Paik’s 1998 video/sculpture “Mr. Kim” draws one into the space, and is displayed along side 12th century stoneware ceramics, porcelain, and Park Seo- Bo’s 21st century paintings. Very interesting and beautiful new installation. #BrooklynMuseum #ArtsofKorea #NamJunePaik #ParkSeoBo

In the 18th century, Joseon potters introduced a diverse range of stationery goods to meet the increased demand from the literati scholar’s class. This diversity is especially apparent in water droppers, which were created in myriad shapes and decorative motifs. The peach is a Korean symbol of longevity and the wish for a long, healthy life. Water droppers were used to moisten an inkstone, which would be ground with a hardened stick of ink to create a liquid ink. #artsofkorea #한국미술⠀⠀

Large quantities of high-fired stoneware were produced for tombs throughout southern Korea during the Three Kingdoms period. This bell cup was formed using the potter’s wheel and was fired in a tunnel kiln at temperatures greater than 1,000 degrees Celsius. It has a tall, perforated stem that expands into a bell with two clay pellets inside to produce a sound. Spherical bells also appear in ancient Korean bronze artifacts such as horse fittings. #artsofkorea #한국미술⠀⠀

도장을 찍듯이 떡의 표면에 떡살을 눌러 찍어내면 다양한 문양을 만들 수 있었습니다.
떡살은 집안에 따라 문양이 정해져 있어서 이웃에게도 빌려주지 않았다고 합니다.

Tteok are rice cakes made of a sweetened glutinous rice flour. Traditionally, rice is soaked in water, ground into a paste and steamed in an earthenware vessel. The cake is then pressed with a patterned mold brushed with sesame seed oil. The decoration on this mold resembles the radiating petals of a peony, which symbolizes prosperity and wealth. Traditionally, families would make their own wooden molds and cakes could be identified by their unique designs. #artsofkorea #한국미술

Norigae are tassel-like pendants traditionally worn by Korean women, who attach them to their jeogori, a garment worn on the upper body. This norigae is composed of several charms with symbol meanings: the miniature sword wards off evil, the gourd-shaped vase represents joy and plenty, and the smaller pendant element is a noisemaker that protects the wearer from harm—similar to the way windchimes scare off birds in a field. #artsofkorea #한국미술

Throughout the reign of the Joseon dynasty, men of the upper classes were required to wear brimmed hats called gat any time they appeared in public. Initially the hats had very wide brims as in this example. In the mid-nineteenth century, however, as part of reforms designed to curb the excesses of the aristocracy, Daewongun (regent for the king from 1863 to 1873) banned large hats, replacing them with much smaller models. As a result, this example—and its storage box—is extremely rare. #artsofkorea #한국미술
