Things Korean - Onggie
This home page is dedicated to Onggies, traditional antique Korean pots.
At first glance, Onggies may appear to be nothing more than ordinary and
somewhat crude old pots. However, a closer inspection reveals that they in fact
possess special qualities of beauty and wisdom, and these dormant qualities lend to
an appreciation for the ancestors who produced them.
The purpose of this homepage:
Our dedication to celebrating the Onggie style of pot allows us to provide a
glimpse of the wisdom and spirit of our ancient artisans, and allows us to preserve
the remnants of our ancient cultural heritage.
This homepage consists of 7 different main menus.
The introduction provides an informative overview of Onggies for those who are
unfamiliar with this traditional style of pot. The second section discusses the
various changes Onggies went through during certain historical periods. The third
section provides information on the production of Onggies, with several
accompanying illustrations. The fourth section elaborates on the systematic features
of Onggies in general. The fifth section presents newspaper articles dedicated to the two artisans who
maintained a meagre existence while attempting to collect and preserve the ancient
Onggies for posterity. The sixth section describes the preparation of the
environment designed specifically for the appreciation of the beautiful Onggies.
Additional information and clasifications of the Onggies may be provided upon
