‘Moon Jars’ date back to the early 16th century made traditionally in white porcelain during the Joseon Dynasty. It is from this era in Korea and the Minoan Civilisation in Crete and the beautiful Pithoi traditional Jars I draw my inspiration.
* Each piece is uniquely hand crafted and therefore will be slight variations in the design from piece to piece
