Goryeo celadon bowls share many similarities with Chinese green-glazed Yue ware bowls. Yue ceramics have been discovered at a few sites in Korea, and scholars believe that the making of Korean celadons may have begun through awareness of Chinese Yue ware production methods. Goryeo celadons reached a high level of perfection in the late eleventh to early twelfth century, and Chinese writers of the period praised them for their beauty and originality. By the end of the Goryeo dynasty, demand for celadon wares declined as the Joseon dynasty (1392‒1910) rose to power.
