2006 Hong-Ik MT

The 2006 Hong-Ik MT took place in Busan/Gimhae. MT is like freshman orientation but for the whole dept. and usually has nothing to do with school. The graduate and undergraduate classes in the Ceramics Dept went down to Busan and to Gimhae, where the new Gimhae Clayarch Museum is situated. While the undergraduate students spent most of the three days touring around the Busan area, the graduate students attended a two day seminar on the use of ceramics as a architechtural medium - not just tiles and surface treatments but also as a fundemental structural resource. Speakers included: Tony Hepburn, Susan Tunick, and Thomas Daley (son of William Daley). Particpating artists included: Jun Kaneko, William Daley, Tony Hepburn, amongst many other great artists.

Of just wouldn't be right if we didn't party it up each night as well. Getting out of seoul and going to busan (for the first time!) was great. Getting to spend more time with my fellow classmates was wonderful too - I don't think i've had this much fun for a while.
