As a university professor and ceramic artist, Professor Cho Chung-hyun is an important figure in contemporary Korean ceramics. She has researched the type of Korean ceramics used for storing food, particularly condiments, known as onggi pots. Her interest in onggi stonewares, slow-fired and red-bodied, is reflected in the colour and surface treatment of this pedestal vessel. Another strand of Korea's ceramic past, the unglazed pedestal vessels of the period before 700 AD, is also apparent in this example of Professor Cho's stoneware.

Retired from her academic position at Ewha Womans University, [sic] Seoul, Cho Chung-hyun has remained active in the promotion of Korea's contemporary potters, in her native country and abroad.
