Inspiring, Puch'ong Bowl

Korean bowl from the 15th century. Inlaid and stamped decoration; scroll of peony leaves.

I have tried this technique in the past, it's called Mishima. It is very time consuming; carve the image, fill the carving with slip, scrape excess slip off. It's not my favorite process, but I love how it looks when rendered skillfully (as above). This bowl has a tiny chrysanthemum in the center. tiny chrysanthemum leaves


  1. Nice bowl. I have started trying this process. Cups in a current show: http://www.akardesign.com/creators/profile.asp?iCreatorID=391&iCategoryID=4&iCreatorType=-1
