Korean Ceramics

Here are some pictures from my travels in Korea. All of these pictures were taken in the city of Icheon, the site of the some of the historical Royal Kilns of the Chosun Dynasty. Today it’s the site of the Korean Ceramics Biennale. It’s also got some 40-50 potteries, tons of neat shops, a cool museum, good food. They also really pride themselves on their history and traditional ceramic styles. Very cool place, you can check out the website @ http://www.icheon.go.kr/site/eng/main.do

My name is Matt and I'm a potter living in Southeast Alaska. I've been an artist/teacher/potter for the past decade, and I got my start in ceramics in high school some 18 years ago. These days I make my living selling wheel thrown pottery that sits at the intersection of ceramics/science/mineralogy/and geology.
