A message from Kwak Kyungtae:

After decades of practice in onggi-making on traditional Korean wooden kick wheels (목물레), I developed this innovative, durable wheel to help the next generation of onggi-makers develop their craft. 


This wheel has gone through multiple iterations, testing and development to reach the stage at which I enjoy using in my own practice. 


It is a high quality, durable wheel which will withstand the rigours of large scale practice, maintain momentum efficiently and remain stable even with hundreds of kilos of clay rotating atop it. Onggi techniques depend on an ultra-responsive wheel, so ceramists and sculpture artists creating smaller scale and fine work will also appreciate the friction-less movement of the wheel. 


This wheel has been engineered to ensure it will be a lifelong partner in your making.


We wish for many people to learn these incredible traditional onggi techniques. Access to the right equipment is integral for the continued survival of this practice which has endured for generations. 


I am excited to see how people will use this wheel to practice and innovate, not only in the onggi technique but in the wide variety of pottery and sculpture practices around the world which require a free-running, strong, stable kickwheel. I cannot wait to see how people use this wheel to practice their own ceramic traditions.
