In Seong Hyeon’s 『Yongjaechonghwa 慵齋叢話』, “pottery is the most necessary vessel for people to use. Currently, in Mapo, Noryangjin, etc., they make clay baking as a business, and this is a kind of earthenware jar and crock”, indicating the importance of crock as a daily container. As such, it can be seen that crock has been used important in life since prehistoric times.
In the process of making Onggi, first knead the soil, dry it slightly in the shade, hit it with a bat to make it into a brick shape, and hit it on the floor to make a board-shaped skein. This is called ‘panjang-jil’. Then, put the skein on the wheel and iron it (refining) with a bat. The shape of Onggi is determined by the speed of the spinning wheel and hand movements.
