Celadon from Old Korea, Goryeo

This is the kettle that came out from Hang-Choi's tomb in Kang-hwa-do, Korea. It is national treasure 133 and it is created inspired by lotus blossom. Decoration is really fancy and showy. If we see closer, it also has little details of beautiful decoration and it is just impressive how ceramic artists made this kind of ceramic in beginning of 13th century. I also want to make kettle like this sometime later when I have enough skills to make one.
