Who knew watching a ceramic artist at work could be so mesmerizing? The American Museum of Ceramic Art posted a video that showcases five South Korean artists diligently working on their beautiful ceramic pieces.
The video was released in honor of ICHEON: Reviving the Korean Ceramics Tradition, an exhibition organized by the city of Icheon in South Korea. Icheon, not too far from Seoul, is a place rich with ceramic culture and history dating back 5000 years. The city is known internationally for its esteemed ceramic arts events.
Last year, for the first time, Icheon reached out to the American Museum of Ceramic Art to premiere an exhibition of over 230 ceramic objects never before seen in the United States. The objects represent the revival of ceramics culture and tradition in Korea, from longstanding techniques to present-day innovations. The exhibition was open October 12th – December 29th, 2013.
