Onggi Potters in Oegosan

Heo Deok-man was a potter who first turned the chamber kiln used in the ceramic workshop into the onggi kiln. Coming to Oegosan in 1950s, he created an onggi village with several traditional onggi potters. Since then, the production of traditional onggi has been increased and now onggi is one of the Ulsan City Intangible Cultural Assets.

Potters’ Artworks Equipped with Artistry

Onggi potters in Oegosan Onggi Village have stuck to traditional methods and led the onggi industry. They also conduct diverse works so as to enhance the prestige of onggi and let people know its artistic values not only by producing common onggi but also by making artistic onggi.

Ulsan City Intangible Cultural Assets, Oegosan Onggi Association

Considering the frequent use of traditional kilns, the completeness of onggi producing skills, and technical transfer systems, the Ulsan City Cultural Properties Committee officially registered the Ulju Oegosan Onggi Association as the Ulsan City Intangible Cultural Asset No. 4. This was the foundation for cultural transmission and development by refreshing the awareness of our tradition, onggi.
