Moon Bueong-Sik

Had a chance to spend the day at the studio of Moon Byeong-Sik
yesterday with Juno. He and I threw pots side by side on his two
wheels and were both interested in each of our differences in
technique. It was really nice to see him make such refined pots with
only a knife for cutting the pots off of the hump and a chamois for
smoothing the rims of his pots, no other tools! Above is an image of
his finished work, very tight & clean but in person you can still see
that it is hand made. I was able to shoot some video of him throwing
and plan to edit and post it soon.
