The 8th Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale 2015 (GICB 2015) hopes to experiment with new and innovative ideas in ceramics by inviting well known artists around the world to support their creative activities simultaneously as developing the ceramic community of Icheon by collaborating with the local artists through the <INTERNATIONAL CERAMIC WORKSHOP>.
