Han Cheon Pottey is owned by a pottery Master Craft, who was being awarded "Master Hand" by the President in 2013. [if this was what I understand correctly..] My mother, my 10-year old son and myself booked a 1 day tour to this Incheon Pottery Village, where we get to make our own simple item n get to draw on...

This is a beautiful place to make, learn about, buy, or look at korean ceramics. If you book ahead, you can make them. Seeing the traditional kiln was hot.💥, making art was great. There are several shops and a coffeeshop. Lots of ceramic statuary for photos. Outside in the parking lot there is a traditional eatery. To the right of... More

We stopped at Icheon Ceramic Village to shop and look at ceramics. Many of the shops had similar items for sale. Yet, each had their own styles and different things for sale. I wasn't that impressed, but, perhaps, we didn't see enough as it was late in the day. Shopping in Insadong, we saw similar tea sets for sale for... More

Took standard tour to Icheon Ceramic Village to see how they make celadon ceramics. Guide spoke excellent English; 1 hr from COEX to the village. Which is quite substantial. We visited two master hands, one of whom demonstrated throwing a large pot. The beautiful creamy light green is a favorite of mine; the process of making it fascinating. Total 4... More

While the pottery village may not be for everyone, it did provide my husband and I with a deeper understanding of Korean culture! We were there on a snowy afternoon in January. My husband and I do not speak or understand Korean, and we know only what we read on the internet on the way to the village about pottery.... More

Having experienced the high price of Korean celedon in Seoul, we boarded the bus for Icheon in search of quality and reasonable prices. Of the many store fronts in the village only one fit our particular celedon search we were looking for. The store had exactly what we were looking for and at a very reasonable price. The village was... More

Although I love tripadvisor and always use it when traveling, this is where it falls short--in reaching specialized communities. I am a designer and know a fair amount about furniture and ceramics. Icheon has mass-produced ceramics that will not appeal to you if you are a designer or have some design knowledge or are in other creative fields.

We spent almost five hours wandering around looking at all the different ceramics shops and the kilns and the different work on display. A beautiful sunny day helped and you can stop and have a coffee and explore all the different outlets. If you buy anything, they will ship it back for you and it is not really that expensive...

Icheon's Ceramics Village offers visitors a chance to explore the diverse and unique items made using ceramics. Seeing how the ceramics are made with the numerous kilns within the village is certainly a highlight. For those who love to do hands-on activities you will be happy to make your own pottery creation. The facility will even mail it to you... More
