Traditional Korean ceramics culture has a long and rich history of various interactions with China and Japan on one hand, and indigenous creative forces on the other. Korea was the first country to import porcelain technology from China in the ninth and tenth centuries. However, recognition and appreciation of Korean ceramics culture, both within Korea and abroad, is very limited. In traditional Korean society, potters, considered members of the lowest social status, and their technology were completely ignored by Confucian scholars. Korean ceramics artists and studios have increased manifold in last decade, but their influence remains largely local and their vision focused within their own fields and experience.

The first study on Korean shards was made in the 1970s in Cologne, Germany, followed a decade later by two more studies in the U.S. Such studies finally began to reach a level of prominence within Korea in the 1990s at the Department of Science for Cultural Heritage in Chung-Ang University. To date more than 1700 shards are analyzed for their composition and micro-structural characteristics in this laboratory alone, and now many other university and research institutes are making similar studies throughout the country. Modern sophisticated instruments and techniques are enabling these objects to reveal themselves in detail as never before. By interpreting scientific results within their historical context, ceramics reflect human expression in both artistic and technological creativity, and economic and social demands of the period.

About the Lecturer:
Carolyn K. Choo majored in Chemistry at Radcliffe College and received a Ph. D. in Physical Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1973. She taught at Chung-Ang University from 1974 (Department of Chemistry) until she retired as professor emeritus in 2007.

In 1994 she helped found an interdisciplinary department for the scientific analysis and preservation of cultural objects. She has also published in-depth papers on natural plant dyeing technology. In 2008, she founded East Rock Publishing, which aims to publish English books on East Asian cultures and personalities.
