Luxury Korean Ceramics

Korean celadon was once revered. While the technique of the green glaze was learned from China, Korean ceramists of the Goryeo period added their own touch. The Koreans added graceful designs onto the surface of the ceramics by using a remarkable "inlaying technique", an entirely Korean invention. It is said that even the Chinese considered Korean celadon "The best under heaven and more valuable than gold,".

Unfortunately, these arts could not hold up against the small peninsula's subjugation by multiple conquering forces. Starting with Mongol invasions in the 1200s, the quality of Korean pottery began to decline until finally, "during the Japanese colonial period (1910-1945), Korean pottery as an art form all but died out".

Nestled amid scenic mountain hikes and traditional temples, the city of Icheon, South Korea, hopes to revive a 5,000-year-old tradition of ceramics.

We are proud to have Kiseong Na, from Cheongchu, as our ceramic artist and we will work together to bring Korean ceramics to the world.
