Buncheong ware, or Punch'ong ware is a form of traditional Korean stoneware, with a bluish-green tone. Pots are coated with a white slip, and decorative designs are painted on using an iron pigment. The style emerged in the early Joseon Dynasty, largely replacing celadon in common use. It all but disappeared from Korea after the 16th century due to the popularity of white porcelains. In modern times, the style has been revived in Korea.

The Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, houses a permanent collection of Buncheong ware,[1] as well as the National Museum of Korea.
