Gifted Planet - Earth's got Talent. Icheon

Today, instead of presenting a gifted person or gifted group of people, I would like to introduce you to an entire village. This is the pottery village of Icheon in South Korea.

Icheon is a small town in Gyeonggi Province with a tradition of over 2000 years of exquisite craftmanship. It is famous for the world class pottery that is produced there - as well as its naturally occurring therapeutic hot springs.

Icheon’s ceramic village is located in Sindun-myeon. The village has grown rapidly becoming a full-on complex containing over 300 ceramic art studios, 40 of which still produce ceramics with wood-fired kilns.
