From Clay to Kiln: A Visit to the Icheon Ceramics Village in Korea

Rochel Burstyn

Hi everyone! Come join me as I find the perfect birthday present for my mother. She loves beautiful, one-of-a-kind gifts, so I’ve travelled all the way to the Icheon Ceramics Village in Korea to get her something special. The entire village is packed with hundreds of curious tourists and is humming with activity. I’m excited to discover how a lump of clay can turn into something pretty and useful. Come join me and you’ll find out, too!

Pinny punched his pillow and lay back down. He had stayed home from school with a nasty flu today and not one of his friends had called him. He stared up at the ceiling and frowned. He thought of the lesson Rabbi Frankel had taught them during these long weeks of sefira about the lack of ahavas Yisroel amongst Rabbi Akiva’s talmidim. “Some good it did,” he mumbled. “Some friends they turned out to be.”
