Gwangju Gonjiam Ceramic Park, A Place Where the Past and Present Coexist
Gwangju, located in Gyeonggi-do Province, is a city with a rich historical legacy in which royal kilns were established to produce white porcelain for the Joseon royal court.
In particular, the Gonjiam Ceramic Park encompasses the Samri Paleolithic Site within its 160 acres of land, and therefore reveals the history and tradition from the prehistoric times to the present. Gonjiam Ceramic Park is a multi-cultural complex to experience a diverse range of activities from tradition, culture, art, education, recreation, and relaxation.
It includes a traditional handcraft workshop, hands-on classes, outdoor performance stages, ceramics shopping mall, sculpture parks, and a gallery cafe that operate year-round.
These facilities are established centering the Mosaic Park that has public artworks and the Gyeonggi Ceramic Museum showcasing major ceramic works dating from ancient times, when ceramics were first made in Korea, to the modern times.
