Icheon City is a village located in the Gyeonggi Province of South Korea. With a history shrouded in a ceramic culture that began over 5000 years ago, there are currently over 300 ceramic studios centered around Sugwang-ri and Saum-dong in Sindun-myeon, a region which has played a pivotal role in the city reputation as the mecca of ceramics in Korea.

Icheon has been designated as a “Special Ceramic Industry Zone” with an infrastructure developed for specific commercial and industrial enterprises. Home to the only ceramic specialized high school in Korea, the city also houses the only ceramic institution in Korean, the Korea Institute of Ceramic Engineering and Technology (KICET). Craft education plays an important role in the community and is divided into two parts, a formal education and a lifelong education. The World Ceramic Biennale, the Icheon International Scumpture Symposium and the Icheon Ceramic Festival are all hosted in Icheon.

A Sister Cities Agreement was signed between Santa Fe and Icheon on November 18, 2013. Both cities have been awarded UNESCO designations, giving them a rich foundation for a Sister Cities relationship with a focus on educational and cultural exchanges.
