This Korean Celadon censer or incense burner is made by famous Korean potter Ji Bok Seon. This lovely censer was a purchase from one of our antique dealers in Japan, and he told us it is about 30 years old. It comes with a three-page biography of this successful potter, which is in English this time! It is a handmade potter piece of art as a censer or incense burner, in a beautiful thick layer of blue celadon glaze over Korean pottery. The censer is made in a hexagon shape of simplistic beauty, smaller at the bottom on which it has a small rim as a foot; and a lid with a simple finial and carved teardrop venting. It has patina of age including crazing of the celadon glaze which is intentionally and beautifully made in this style wares. We have only shared one picture of his three-page bio here. Ji Bok Seon has signed the piece in underglaze blue on the bottom. It also comes with the signed tomobako made especially for the piece. This is an excellent collectors piece, and in excellent condition with no cracks or chips,
