ulsan onggi festival

one of the things i really wanted to do during my time in korea was to visit as many nearby cities as i could, given that the country is so small and transportation is cheap.

the first opportunity presented itself in the form of the ulsan onggi festival. ‘onggi’ is korean for pottery, and ulsan is so close to busan that it takes but a short forty-five minute ‘slow’ train ride to get there.

the artists at the pottery festival have studios there and create their works year-round. it was amazing to see them at work, from shaping the clay to heating it up with small flames.

it was such a beautiful, hot autumn day. i loved being outside in these huge fields, taking in the art and greenery all around.
