A Society for Asian Art Symposium to coincide with the opening of the exhibition, "Poetry in Clay: Korean Buncheong Ceramics from Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art" on view at the Asian Art Museum (September 16, 2011 - January 8, 2012). At the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty, Korean potters developed a new style - whimsical, rustic, direct, fresh, audacious, contemporary using iron paint, stamped or inlaid designs, or simple white slip. By the sixteenth century, the buncheong ceramics had fallen out of fashion in Korea, but their influence continued to be felt strongly in Japan. Rediscovered in the 20th Century, Buncheong ware has once again achieved the interest and affection of connoisseurs and has seen as the expression of a native approach to art, genuinely
Korean, fresh, and vital. Join us for a day to study this enduring ceramic style that sprang from the celadon tradition to create an aesthetic quintessentially Korean which retains its popularity into modern times.

The Society for Asian Art is a support organization for the Asian Art Museum. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was incorporated in 1958 by a group of citizens dedicated to winning Avery Brundage's magnificent art collection for San Francisco.
