are not many biennales being held under the theme of ceramics. Amongst
Ceramic Biennales being held all around the world, CEBIKO has established
itself as an outstanding ceramic biennale in terms of its quality
Korea, along with China, has a distinguished history and tradition
in world ceramic history and astounding numbers of ceramic masterpieces
including Goryeo Celadon and Joseon White Porcelain prove Korea
as a nation of ceramics, therefore it is only natural for Korea
to hold a world ceramic biennale.
Ceramists from every corner of the world are invited to take part
in the 4th World Ceramic Biennale 2007 Korea International Competition.
This grand-scale international event, frequented by the world's
finest ceramic artists, focuses on defining new values and creative

one of the main events of the World Ceramic Biennale Korea, will
be held from April 28 to June 24 2007 where ceramic artists from
across the globe will compete in categories of "Ceramics for
Use" and "Ceramics as Expression."
