Moon jar, which was created in the late Joseon dynasty, was named after its shape like a full moon.
It has round curves, giving the audience the feeling of stability.
Because of the full round shape and its size, the upper part and the lower part of the jar were made separately, attached to each other afterwards.
Therefore, the beauty of the structure can differ according to the potter.
The color of the jar, milky white was a kind of signature color of the Joseon Dynasty, representing the integrity and dignity of the noblemen.
