Jinho Jeong has recreated a traditional Korean Moon Jar in three sizes.
A moon jar is a type of traditional Korean white porcelain which was made during the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910). The Joseon white porcelain was adopted as imperial ware in the fifteenth century. The name comes from its shape and milky colour of the glaze to resemble the colouration of the moon
Often it consists of two hemispherical halves that have been joined together in the middle. The slightly uneven natural shape added to its appeal during the Joseon dynasty.
The large moon jar has a textured finish with a dark inner, the medium and small moon jars have a smooth porcelain glaze throughout.
Small: 110mm (dia)
Medium: 220mm (dia)
Large: 360mm (dia)
Jinho Jeong is South Korean ceramic artist based in Auckland. Jinho trained at the prestigious Kyunggi University in South Korea before spending a year at the highly acclaimed Jingdezhen University in China, a city well known throughout out the world for its history of fine porcelain and ceramics.
Throughout 2008 Jinho honed his craft under some of the countries top tutors and studied cobalt drawing and abrasion techniques which gives his work an incredibly fine finish.
Now settled in New Zealand, Jinho’s work is characterised by lines and colours: horizontal lines represent stability and calmness while vertical lines describe tension. Jinho sees the lines and colours in his work as a way of bringing unique characteristics to each piece, a representation of personality and character similar to a genetic map.
Jinho was a finalist in the 2017 and 2019 Portage Ceramic Awards and has won the first prize in Royal Easter Show for 2016 & 2017 and second prize in Waiclay National Ceramics Award 2017.
