Scope note
Refers to a style of pottery that is named for the city of Mishima in Shizuoka prefecture, Japan, although it was originally developed in Korea. It is created using a distinctive technique of decorating the ceramic piece with inlaid clays in contrasting colors, then generally covering the piece with a celadon glaze. The name "Mishima" dates from the 17th century, but the style dates to the Koryo Period (935-1392), when it was called "Korai" or "Zogan."
