This Hagiyaki tea bowl on which ten lines of Hangeul, or the Korean alphabet, are written is belived to have been made in Hagi, Yamaguchi prefecture, Japan around 17-18th century. During the Japanese invasions of Joseon in 1592-1598, numerous Korean potters were forcibly taken to Japan. They settled down in various parts of the country and produced superb porcelain, facilitating the development of Japanese ceramics.
