Return to Artist's Background

"International Ceramic Exhibition ", Aug. 5-21, 2009  

Organized by Arthur Park, 22 international clay sculptors came together for an exhibiton and two week cultural tour of Korean Ceramics at the Gangjin Celadon Festival, Ganjin, Korea (www.morningearthpottery.com).  The ceramics ranged from large scale sculpture to finely crafted porcelain pieces, which were shown in the museum located on the festival grounds.   Participants got their energy going and spent much time talking, sharing, viewing art, eating traditional Korean food and listening to everyone's stories.  The cultural tour included stops in Ulsan and Seoul where we visited many museums, temples and Korean potters' studios.  What a great experience!
