The Sackler Gallery

The Sackler Gallery was next in line. It also specializes in Asian art and I was in love again. We saw beautiful jade carved dressing hooks like these.
They also have more modern Asian art. This bowl was amazing in it's glazing and size.

These 2 piece are a type of Korean Celadon pottery from the 12th century. I read a great book called "The Last Shard" that went into the story of the type of pottery and glazing technique. You can see it well but if you look closely at this first vase you will see how it is carved underneath the glaze, the flowers and leaves.

More jade carved comb and dressing hooks
