GWANGJU, Gyeonggi Province -- Korea's ceramic heritage dates back 8,000 years, with a lineage of artisans refining their craft across generations.

At the Gyeonggi Ceramic Museum in Gwangju, Gyeonggi Province, visitors have the opportunity to follow the evolution of Korean ceramics from ancient times to the present day.

During the Joseon era, Gwangju emerged as an important ceramics supplier to the court as its rich soil and abundant firewood that were conducive to making high-quality ceramics and its strategic proximity to Joseon's capital, Hanyang.

Upon entering the museum, one is captivated by the sheer beauty and diversity of the ceramic artistry on display.

The collection here spans a rich spectrum of ceramic art, encompassing robust onggi to exquisite Goryeo celadon and intricate buncheongsagi to elegant white celadons of Joseon.

Each piece tells a story, reflecting the aesthetics and the practical needs of their times.
