Onggi Ceramics Small Set

Onggi Ceramics Small Set from Korean potter Kang Seung Chul consists of a teapot (about 220ml ) with little plate for the lid and three bowls


Onggi Ceramics is a Korean traditional style. Kang Seung Chul from Jeju Island, makes traditional Onggi containers, but at the same time, he has a fascination for the much more delicate tea ware. His source of inspiration is classical Korean and Japanese tea ware designs, which he reproduces and then develops further by including his own ideas. He exclusively uses the local porous clay, which is not glazed and which, through the firing process, develops different colours from light brown with yellow spots to different shades of red to dark brown.
