Summary:Tree-ear, an orphan, lives under a bridge in Ch’ulp’o, a potters’
village famed for delicate celadon ware. He has become fascinated
with the potter’s craft; he wants nothing more than to watch master
potter Min at work, and he dreams of making a pot of his own someday.
When Min takes Tree-ear on as his helper, Tree-ear is elated until
he finds obstacles in his path: the backbreaking labor of digging and
hauling clay, Min’s irascible temper, and his own ignorance. But
Tree-ear is determined to prove himself even if it means taking a
long, solitary journey on foot to present Min’s work in the hope of a
royal commission . .. even if it means arriving at the royal court
with nothing to show but a single celadon shard.
