Moon Jars, dal-hang-a-ri to give them their Korean name, so called because of their shape and pale ethereal appearance were first produced in the 17th & 18th centuries, during the Josean period (1392 - 1910). Designed to store soy sauce, alcohol and to sometimes display flowers, they were traditionally made of porcelain. The pale slightly imperfect form, made by joining together 2 hemispherical halves, was in keeping with the Confucianist ideals of the period - austerity, simplicity & modesty.
