Moon started making pots when he was in high school, 22 years ago. When he was learning how to throw on the wheel, he was way behind in the class. Instead of being frustrated, he continued to work and came in every single day, often staying late after all of the classes were over, and threw lots and lots of pots.

Moon’s production studio is in Yeuju, which has been one of the major towns in Korean ceramics for the last four centuries because it is a source for fine-grade porcelain. His father is a farmer and he first set up a studio at a small space on the farm. He took out all the farming machines and tools and created a very small studio space. He was alone when he started the business but now he works with family members, who are in charge of helping with many different aspects of the making process, with the exception of throwing.

He produces 1000–3000 pots every month with an assistant’s help. In addition to thrown pots, Moon Do Bang also produces customized slab-built and slip-cast plates, which are mostly made by assistants at a casting factory in Yeoju.
