The Vase Story 6: KOREAN MOON JAR

The illustration is dedicated to celebrating the beauty of the Korean Moon Jar which dates back to the late Joseon dynasty. It was originally crafted at the kingdom’s kiln complexes in Gwangju during the 17th and 18th centuries. Its moon shape was created by joining two hemispherical halves. It was traditionally used to store rice, ‘jeotgal’ (fermented seafood), soy sauce. Its name is derived from its shape and milky white color of the glaze which bears some resemblance to full moon.

It captures the essence of nature and the ancient Confucian principles of modesty and Buddhism.

The illustrated Korean Moon Jar features the Gyeongbokgung Palace and the Korean man and woman dressed in traditional costumes.

Korean Moon Jar Art Print for Wall & Home Decor.

Struck by the first line of “The Book of Tea” by Tenshin Okakura which reads:  “Asia is One”, Collective Memory has teamed up with illustrator Cella Marcy to release the “Asia is One” illustration series.

By reimagining what Asian countries would look like in an iconic blue china ceramic vase, the series is aimed at recognizing the cultural characteristics of each Asian country whilst at the same time celebrating the richness, diversity, harmony and mutually shared values of the region, which go far beyond the images of people just living on rice and noodles.
