The scene of a Taoist boy playing between lotus blossoms or vines, such as the one shown on the surface of this celadon green porcelain kettle, was a motif favored by potters of the Northern Song Dynasty. The design was later introduced during the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392) by potters who loved to decorate their celadon items with it through the new inlaying technique they developed. The design filling on either side of this pot captures a boy playing between vines and four imaginary Buddhist flowers called bosanghwa. The motif, expressed by inlaid black lines, is highlighted by the rest of the surface that is inlaid with white slip. The delightfully simple form of the spherical body is in beautiful harmony with the main motif as well as the wonderfully slim, and vine-like, handle. Read More
