Features

Mungyeong has a rich history, a convenient traffic system, and abundant firewood. It is the best tea bowl producing place because of high quality sandy soil with wide limestone deposits. The fact that 40 kiln sites use traditional firewood kilns is what earns our festival its proud reputation.

Also this city's cultural infrastructure is formed by the Mungyeong Ceramic Museum, Sagijang Apprenticeship Hall, Docheon Ceramic Art Museum, and more than 200 kiln sites, eliciting deep appreciation for our tradition.
