This workshop can be taken as a 1- or 2-day class.

On the first day, Dave presents slides and discusses the history and contextual culture of Korean moon jars and demonstrates how he throws and assembles contemporary versions of them from two parts made  on the pottery wheel.

The second day will be hands on. With Dave's guidance, participants throw and assemble their own moon pots.

About Dave Kim

Dave Kim the Potter uses direct influence from his cultural heritage as a Korean to apply developed aesthetics to his functional pottery. Currently working in Brooklyn, NY, he believes that creating historic Korean pottery preserves a culture that is slowly dissipating by the modern society.  

Each pottery Kim creates collects elements of form, decoration, color and material from various traditional Korean pottery styles, individually offering a wide variety of styles such as Sang-gam(Korean inlay technique), Baek-ja(porcelain-ware typically known for Moonjars), or Bun-cheong(technique that uses stamps). 

Producing work that has been done for centuries, Kim still challenges the limits of what can be done by following the ways of Korean pottery. His experimental interest has also enabled him to create new bodies of work that has strayed away from the tradition yet very grounded at the core of what Korean pottery is; simplicity that represents natural, unpretentious beauty.
