Lotus porridge is generally a tobacco pipe. The tobacco stand made of Baekdong is called Baekdong Lotus Porridge, and the Person who has the technique of making Baekdong Tobacco Bar is called Baekdong Lotus Porridge.
It is said that tobacco was introduced through Japan after the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592, and that is why Dongnae, the center of trade with Japan, is a traditional scenic spot.
The structure of the pipe consists of three parts: a water bill that sucks smoke into the mouth, a bamboo rod that burns cigarettes, and a thin bamboo pole that connects them.
The bamboo is made of metal such as copper, brass, and white bronze because it is heat-resistant and prone to structural damage. Fraud products can sometimes be seen, but they are extremely rare.
Water beaks are not limited to metal fittings, but rather they are free to use various materials such as jade, ivory, and iron horns. The name varies depending on the pattern. The patternless white lotus porridge is called Minjuk, and the pretty pattern is called the star porridge and flower bed.
Star porridge is called silver porridge and odongjuk depending on the ingredients. The process of making white-bronze lotus porridge is first made of white-bronze, which is combined with a ratio of 58 percent copper, 37 percent nickel and 5 percent zinc. If nickel is high in content, white appears. It takes delicate work such as gold and silver work to make the alloy very thin by tapping on the metal, and to solder all parts with patterns.
Korea's lotus porridge is famous for its blue-coated lotus porridge, gold and silver tobacco poles, and it is famous for being made in Gyeongju, Gimcheon, Yeonghae, Ulsan, and Yecheon. It is still handed down from Namwon, Jeollabuk-do, and Anseong, Gyeonggi-do to this day.
