Celadon Porcelain Green Pottery Ceramic Duck Figurine

View More Pictures

This exquisite celadon pottery vessel is inspired from a duck with a lotus spray in her mouth. The spout from which water is dropped onto an inkstone is at the cut end of the lotus stalk while the hole from which it is filled with water is at the back decorated with lotus buds and leaves. The attractive curve of the breast and the delightful soaring line from the tail to the bill help create a form that is both dynamic and static.

Korean celadon pottery is renowned the world over since Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392) for its exquisite inlaid designs, voluminous form, elegantly-curved lines and mysterious color, the color of the sky after a rainstorm during an autumn afternoon.
