    About this artwork

    This elaborate piece was inspired by buncheong ware, the blue-grayish stoneware with white-slip decoration made during the early Joseon dynasty (1392–1910). Recently, some artists have revisited buncheong to revive and reinterpret this traditional form and technique in a modern way. In creating this work, Yoon Kwang-cho abandoned a potter’s wheel and instead built the form by hand to create an unusual sculptural form. The Heart Sutra, a short Buddhist text, is inscribed on the surface of this work, as a manifestation of the artist’s meditation. The act of writing out Buddhist texts is itself a meditative act, as it requires utmost concentration and dedication.
