Adopt a Pot

leave a comment »

Dear Friends,

After a month and a half of eating and drinking here in Anyang,* I am about to undertake the practical part of my culinary education. I have convinced a few locals to teach me to make kimchi, makgeolli (a fizzy fermented rice beverage) and other fermented foods. In addition to mixing bowls and ingredients, I must buy ceramic kimchi jars to do this the proper way. The number and variety of fermented projects will depend on your generosity.

I hope you can help me finance this endeavor by contributing to Adopt a Pot.

For your $10 contribution you will receive a photo and a personal profile of the pot you are sponsoring. Your pot will update you about its well-being, its contents and the meals to which it contributes. You may also send your pot notes or small gifts if you wish. Remember that sponsorship of a pot also contributes to the enrichment of an entire community here at the Seoksu Art Project creating a better environment in which your pot may thrive. It offers a ceramic pot a chance at a brighter future as a participant in an aesthetic project.

If you would like to Adopt a Pot, simply send your $10 contribution through paypal to my email address (theeatin@gmail.com) or make a pledge by replying to this message. I encourage you to forward this email to anyone who might be interested in Adopt a Pot.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Yours Sincerely,

Elaine
