Indulge in the elegance of this exquisite umbrella that beautifully showcases the traditional Korean pattern of Unhakmun. Adorned with soaring cranes gracefully gliding among the clouds in the expansive sky, this pattern holds deep symbolism representing longevity and luck. Inspired by the renowned Goryeo celadon pottery, a true testament to the highest levels of Korean craftsmanship, this umbrella captures the essence of this rich cultural heritage.
Behind the captivating pattern lies a fascinating story of how Goryeo Celadon emerged and gained popularity. During the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392) in Korea, skilled artisans developed a unique ceramic technique, resulting in the creation of delicate celadon pottery. The distinct green glaze, which resembled the coveted but expensive color of jade, was achieved through a meticulous firing process.
To ensure the Goryeo Celadon Pattern Umbrella truly captures the essence of the celadon color, the designer embarked on an extraordinary journey of color testing. Over 100 different color tests were conducted, each aiming to showcase a shade that closely resembles the enchanting hue of Goryeo celadon. The result is a stunning umbrella that beautifully replicates the mesmerizing color of this ancient pottery.
Experience the perfect fusion of artistry and functionality as you carry this remarkable accessory for both rainy days and sunny strolls wherever you go. It will transport you to a world of timeless beauty and artistic excellence of Goryeo Celadon and the legacy it represents.
