Donggu Bowl resembles the comfortable shape of a Joseon bowl, but is designed to be suitable for serving a meal for modern people.
Bal (鉢) refers to tableware used to serve rice, and porcelain rice bowls are especially called bowls (沙鉢). Joseon's bowls were for one meal, and were relatively large in hemispherical shape and relatively large in order to contain a generous amount.
There are two kinds of blue bowls made by reduction firing and warm colored bowls made by oxidation firing. Through deep glaze research, a surface like floating rice flour was realized.
Dong-gu white porcelain is made using rather simple white porcelain with large and small iron dots. It was intended to have a warm image by revealing stains and dots here and there.
