Onggi Ceramics Tea Caddy

Traditional tea caddy to store the tea from Korean potter Kang Seung Chul


Onggi Ceramic is a traditional Korean style. Kang Seung Chul from Jeju Island, makes traditional Onggi tea caddies, 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.
