"Korean Influences on Japanese Ceramics" opens at the Freer Gallery of Art. The exhibit includes 50 objects to examine the Japanese appreciation of Punch'ong ware, Korean ceramics that entered Japan in the sixteenth century. Korean techniques of applying slip to dark-bodied wares became major elements in the styles of ceramics centers founded by Korean potters in Japan and spread in various forms elsewhere in that country.
