Join us for a very special two-hour zoom workshop with simultaneous demos with Moon Byung Sik (Moon do Bang) and Adam Field, both presenting directly from Adam’s studio in Helena, Montana. They will be throwing on the wheel side by side, exploring two iconic historical Korean pottery forms and the specific steps to make them. Moon will be using porcelain to throw Moon Jars and Adam will be using stoneware to throw (not coil and paddle) Onggi Jars. Similarities and differences of the forms will be discussed with a breakdown of the proportions and their unique centering and throwing methods used to achieve the elegant jar forms.

Moon does not speak English and will have a translator with him to assist translating Korean to English. 

This course is on zoom and if you cannot make it to the live class, you can watch the video for 90 days after it runs.

There will be a translator as well as Kala, your host, to run the class. Questions are always welcome and are a large part of workshops. Because we are using a translator, we strongly encourage you to submit your questions ahead of time by emailing Kala.
