The onggi, which has been baked in a traditional kiln, is air-borne between the outside and inside due to the pore. Onggi, called a breathing vessel, pushes out impurities inside and helps keep the contents free of decay for a long time. Onggi, created by combining past technology and current use, adds value to users' time.
It was made using only natural ingredients, not all glaze. The artisanal secret recipe obtained from nature made a unique color. Inside, it was made by adding natural finishes, such as lye, instead of chemical finish. The artisan newly developed the traditional glaze by studying the glaze that our ancestors used in the past in the onggi. Part of nature, craftsmanship, agony of color and lost values of the past came together, creating a healthy and beautiful onggi.
The traditional onggi-making method produced pots, jars, and cups. The natural color produced by firewood kiln conveys the unique value. It is suitable for use in life because it has a lid on it.
