Simple glazed ceramics with refined shapes were popular in Korea during the Choson period (1392-1910). Though some wares were painted with underglaze decoration, many plain white or near white ceramics were also produced throughout the Choson period. The aesthetic these pieces embody is seen as reflecting the austere ethos of Confucian thought, which was embraced by the Choson dynasty.
