Punch'ong ware is a traditional Korean stoneware with inlaid patterns, and is called "Mishima" in Japan.
This example has been handed down as a flower vase. It is applied with white slip over the gray paste, and creates the white inlaid pattern of peonies on both sides of the body.
The slightly deformed shape and the spontaneous peony pattern produce elegant simplicity, which is the feature of the generous designed Korean ceramic in the Joseon dynasty.
