Yu ri kou 秞裏紅

Oxidised copper paint under glaze.  The technique requires a long time of training to master.  It was first developed in China around the 9th century, and later on during the 18th century the technique became popular in Korea . The paint is very delicate and sensitive to temperature.   It needs the right temperature to create this particular shade of red or it becomes much darker brown in colour.
