Buncheong pottery is a grayish blue powdered pottery that is made by baking with fire.
Buncheong?pottery was made in the late 14th century to the early 17th century. It was the main pottery for the korean ancestors to use but the numbers of the Buncheong?pottery declined due to the Japanese invation of Korea.
It is because during the invation there was kidnapping of the potters and destruction of the important place to make the Buncheong potteries.
