Home > About Onggi Village > Greetings

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for visiting the Oegosan Onggi Village.

Before and after the Korean War, potters nationwide gathering to this village at that time are now members of the largest collective onggi village in Korea. A lot of artisans are dedicated to manufacturing onggi combining traditional techniques with a modern edge.

I think any Korean of the older generations can easily recall childhood memories of crocks located in the sunny backyard of their home and rendered glossy by their mothers’ continuous touch. Our grandmothers and mothers filled these onggi with every Korea sauce and side dish to take good care of the health of their family members all year around.

As housing styles continue to change, onggi is disappearing from our homes. In this context, however, our Oegosan potters have strived to carry on our ancestor wisdom and develop new products to satisfy various onggi lovers’ needs.

Visit our village, and you won’t regret your decision; your children can participate in the entire onggi production process and have a chance to revitalize their lives.
This is just a beginning. We promise you that we won’t surrender to any obstacles ahead of us and we will make our best effort to develop our Oegosan Onggi Village. I wish for your undaunting interest and support.

Thank you.
