During this 7 week workshop, students will learn different techniques of making traditional Korean Moon Jars. The workshop includes demonstrations and hands-on work on the potter’s wheel. The workshop will focus on throwing taller cylinders, stretching techniques and lastly joining multiple thrown pieces to make a larger form. Moon jar is a type of traditional Korean white porcelain ware which was made during the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1897). Traditionally made in 2 halves, the name comes from its resemblance of a full moon. 

Instructor: Dave Kim the Potter uses direct influence from his cultural heritage as a Korean to apply developed aesthetics to his functional pottery. He believes creating pottery in the historic Korean tradition preserves a culture that is slowly dissipating by the modern society.  Each pottery Kim creates collects elements of form, decoration, color and material from various traditional Korean pottery styles.

His experimental interest has also enabled him to create new bodies of work that has strayed away from the tradition yet very grounded at the core of what Korean pottery is; simplicity that represents natural, unpretentious beauty.

Firings Fee: 5 cents per cubic inch (bisque firing).
