Beautiful Pottery at Kwangjuyo

About two weeks ago, LTB (Les Toques Blanc) was invited by Kwangjuyo to visit their pottery factory in Icheon. It was a great trip despite the pouring rain and we got to see the entire operation from clay to pot. Almost everything there is all homemade and done by artisans who have been doing their craft for many years and it shows in the work they produce.

After touring the pottery factory we also got to see their Hwajo Soju and Makgeolli production factory. Really amazing stuff and I'll write more about it after I post the pictures.

I would like to thank Lucia Cho and Kwangjuyo for the very educational trip.
