Reviving the Korean Ceramics Tradition at Art Santa Fe
Icheon Ceramics Village has been producing high-quality traditional Korean ceramics for 500 years and has become the center of traditional pottery since the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910). Now, more than 300 pottery artists are congregated at the village to create the acclaimed ceramic artworks—and Art Santa Fe attendees will have the rare opportunity to witness master ceramic artists demonstrate the procedure of creating pieces using both antique techniques and high-tech applications during a specially curated Art Lab.
In both wheel throwing and painting demonstrations, Boksik Ji, Changwan Hong, Joungoo Ham, and Changho Ahn—known as living cultural treasures of Korea—will create stunning artwork that exemplifies the peace, simplicity, and spiritual temperance in Korean art. Although preserving the 5,000-year-old ceramic culture, the artists also incorporate modern advances in the ceramic industry to create both functional and contemporary art.
Come to Art Santa Fe July 13–16 to enjoy this incredible opportunity to see the highest quality of ceramics being crafted by these internationally renowned artists. The Art Lab, Traditions & Innovations of Icheon Ceramic Arts, will take place at the following times:
