The blue and white porcelain was produced from the early 14th century in China, but in Korea, it was introduced at the end of 14th century, and produced from the middle of 15th century.
This octagonal jar shows the tradition of porcelains during the middle of the Chosun Dynasty. A horizontal line is drawn around the neck of the jar using a faint blue color, unknown leaves are drawn on the slanted shoulder, and 'Chilbomuns' are drawn on the octogonal body. A grey-colored glaze with a light-blue tone was applied, and there are some visible cracks which are made when cutting the surface of the jar.
A kitchen appliance is designed based on the octagonal jar. It replicated the line, leaves, and 'chilbomuns' same as the original as well as its overall shape. Such octagonal jars are rarely used these days, but this jar replica gives a unique visual pleasure.
