    A potter works on the largest earthenware jar in the world in Ulsan, southeastern Korea ahead of the 2009 Onggi Expo.
    The largest jar in the world, which will stand 240 cm tall with a diameter of 196 cm and 550 cm in circumference, is being made in Ulsan, southeastern Korea. The jar is being made as an offering for the 2009 Onggi Expo, which will be held in the port city from Oct. 9 until Nov. 8.

    Nine master potters in the Oegosan earthenware village in Oynyang-eup, the biggest potters' village in the country, are working on the project in three teams under the sponsorship of Ulju district. There are some 40 master potters and 10 earthenware companies in residence in the Oegosan Village.

    Three are being made to guard against any failure. When the final products come successfully out of the kiln, Ulju plans to apply to the Guinness Book of Records.
