A family business


Kim Young-sik’s family has passed down white porcelain-making techniques for eight generations now. Since 240 years ago, Kim’s ancestors have made the famous Joseon-era art, and today, Kim is doing the same.

This kiln in Mungyeong, North Gyeongsang is Folk Material No.135 of the province. The Lotte Gallery in Sogong-dong, Jung District, central Seoul, is showcasing the latest pieces by Kim in an exhibition titled “The Beauty of Joseon’s White Porcelain.”
