In the mid-12th century, Korean artists introduced the technique of using black and white inlays beneath green glaze to depict floating clouds, cranes, and flowers on ceramics. A later, quite different version of this practice, known as sanggam, produced lively, abstract patterns with white pigment alone. In this talk, Dr. Pamela Vandiver, professor of materials science and engineering at the University of Arizona, investigates this amazing technology and its evolution at a microscopic level. This lecture is made possible by the generous support of the National Museum of Korea.
