ABSTRACT

The aim of this paper is to analyze the character, time and place of products of excavated China's blue and white porcelain in Korea peninsula and to know what surroundings made those porcelain consumpt in Korea. For that aim, first of all, we want to grasp the character, time and place of products of excavated China's blue and white porcelain in Korea peninsula, especially in kiln sites, tomb sites, temple sites, consumption sites in Hansung-bu. As a result of it, we can see that China's blue and white porcelain are chiefly excavated in the capital region and the time of those porcelain of Ming dynasty is grasped from middle years of 15th century to 16th century and of Qing dynasty is grasped after 18th century. And we can see also that main place of those porcelain is Jingdezhen nongovermantal kiln, but some porcelain of Qing dynasty was produced in Fujian Xing coast kilns. Jingdezhen was a famous and prosperous porcelain producing place from the last years of Yuan dynasty to the last years of Qing dynasty. But, after Ming dynasty, the porcelain of Fujian Xing kilns is also exported to world. The reason of continual incoming of Jingdezhen porcelain to Korean peninsula is preference on China's highest class porcelain. The demand of China's blue and white porcelain was increased greatly in the late years of Joseon dynasty. In the same time, lower class porcelain of Fujian area satisfied the demand of common people by the active trade of Fujian merchants. Till now, the place of products of China's blue and white porcelain in Korea peninsula has been known Jingdezhen. But if we focus to the archeological materials, can find some porcelain of Fujian area. Therefore, we can conclude that blue and white porcelain of Fujian area was consupted in Korean peninsula as a periodical surroundings of the late years of Jeseon dynasty.
