Buncheong ceramics, which existed between Goryeo celadon and Joseon white porcelain, are characterized by their use of white slip on a grey or dark clay surface. This exhibition offers a glimpse into the transitional style between celadon and porcelain through the diverse textures and tactile qualities of Buncheong ceramics.

Kim Hyunjung, the curator of Denver Art Museum’s Asian Art Department, mentioned that this exhibition includes a significant number of artifacts and artworks donated to the National Museum by the late Samsung Group Chairman Lee Kun-hee. This exhibition serves as an important opportunity to showcase the beauty and historical significance of Korean ceramic art, and Denver Art Museum plans to continue expanding its exhibitions of exquisite Korean artifacts while collaborating with local artists to create meaningful programs.

The special exhibition “” at Denver Art Museum’s Asian Art Department will be on display from now until December 7, 2025.
