In the past, the intimate place called ‘toilet’ was mainly regarded as a place only for personal secrecy and excretion. Only the cleanness and sanitation was emphasized. But with the change of times, the space ‘toilet’ became a place for private cogitation, a resting area to embellish our body and mind and even evaluated so as to become a place to judge the value of the certain space.

E-MOMM - The Development of Contemporary Tableware in Korea

A Collaborative Project to Develop a Tableware Brand Appropriate for the Korean Life Style and Diet, including an exhibition organized by the Ewha Ceramics Research Institute at
Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea.

The Objective of Organizing the Emomm Exhibition

The past twenty years has seen a considerable change in the ceramic tendency within the contemporary ceramic movement of Korea. Although the Korean tradition and custom is deeply rooted in the Korean mentality, most people today have been influenced by the abundance of imported utility wares found in our current ceramic market. In general, most Korean people possess at least one type of traditional ceramic ware – be it a celadon, buncheong, onggi jar, white ware. Yet despite such phenomenon, more and more people are turning their eyes towards purchasing imported ceramics in the likes of Royal Doulton, Wedgwood, Rosenthal or Royal Copenhagen. The last ten years has seen an increase in preference towards such imported ceramics.
