Running in circles …

… or maybe not?

The circle in shape of a vessel resembling a Moon Jar has shown up in several of my recent paintings

Moon Jars were originally made during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). They are curvaceous, plain white porcelain jars resembling a full moon. They were made customarily to contain flowers or wine, but they are also ritual, votive vessels. The finest historical examples date to the 18th century, and during the first half of the 18th century the Royal kilns at Gwangju, Gyeongyi province specialised in producing examples of exceptional quality, all made in a characteristic, milky-white porcelain. Moon Jars, due to their size, were made in two halves, joined together so that the line of the join is often visible.

The original Moon Jars were white, mine seems to prefer a life in colours …?

At the moment I have no clue as to where this investigation will take me – but I do know I’m not there yet.
