Making Korean Ceramics

Posted on December 23, 2014 - 4:11pm

When is the last time you saw something creative and beautiful that you just had to share? Last week, I was privileged to visit the California College of Arts to join a ceramics class presenting their final works of the semester. This class consists of students in their first and second years and introduces to them historical ceramic works of art led by their instructor, Erik Scollon. And guess what was chosen as the subject this time around? Korean ceramics! The artworks covered celadon, buncheong, and blue-and-white porcelain—the history of Korean ceramics in one room.
