The Vase Moon Jar is inspired by an 18th-century Korean porcelain moon jar—named for its softly curved form and milky-white color—in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Moon jars, which were popular in the 18th and 19th centuries during the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910), were typically crafted in two halves and then joined by hand. The moon jar that inspired this vase has in some spots turned a light peachycolor as part of the firing process. These imperfections recall the beauty of nature. The Vase Moon Jar has a serene sand finish.
