Onggi is a unique storage container for crops made by mixing clay. It is also known as a pottery that breathes for reasons of its storage, efficiency, and ventilation features. It is made by mixing and grinding the Clay, Goreongto, Jangseok and Gyeseok etc, then filtering them out with water. The products differ according to the component ratio. In result of this process Chungjato, Baikjato, Bunchungto, Onggito and Sanchungto are made. We presented a healthy Seoul life using Baikjato and Onggito. In addition, beauty from material and form makes the users feel happy using them as an everyday item.
Each type is derived from Korean traditional housewares. Details were added to each cup-and-plate by extracting the shape from ‘Horibyung’ (Korean traditional liquor bottle) and ‘Hangari’(Korean traditional jar) and modifying them. Changes were made to the curved shape and the straight form of these objects, but also we kept the uniformity. The cups and dessert plates are paired to keep coherency. These cups and dessert plates combine to add fun and dignity to everyday items. There are two types, ‘Baikjato’(white clay) and ‘Onggito’. When it comes to Onggito, on the inner surface lye was applied to make it waterproof.
