Marco Minetti
“A journey between East and West”

September 2021

After more than five years practicing the technique of “onggi” in Korea, and now back in California, Minetti’s journey through East Asia to learn ancient ways of living, working and thinking continues to influence his life and artwork. His work explores the potential synergy between humans and nature, and the interactions between clay, hand and fire, in a reinterpretation of Korean tradition and Eastern ancient forms, with the desire of creating beauty for daily use, using native clays, ashes, and foraged materials.
