Korea is a country with long pottery traditions. The art of ceramic-making travelled a long path of improvement and mastery of new techniques. The exhibits presented span a period from ancient times to the works of contemporary craftspeople from recent decades. It thus shows the development of Korean ceramic art from classic examples to innovative artistic creations produced in our own time.  The traditions of Korean ceramic art, founded upon a distinctive artistic taste, a subtle understanding of the specifics of pottery shapes, their constructional peculiarities and relationship with the decoration, have found continuation in our own time. The master ceramists of present-day Korea are rethinking the classic forms and the style of the native pottery. The works of modern artists included in the exhibition reflect the profound influence that Korean ceramics still continue to have on art.
