Concept of artwork 設計理念:

Korean ceramics is one of my most prominent interests. While it is not fancy or colorful, it is an elegant depiction of beauty. I try and find a place for my work in contemporary art while respecting the culture I hold dearly. My practice is a link to my home and my culture. Wheel throwing is the tool I use to pay homage to what I consider important. I can meditate while throwing repetitive forms and accumulate my feelings of and for home. As I am throwing these forms, or pots, I am practicing traditional Korean techniques and forms and integrating new elements. As I continue to practice these traditional techniques, I want to change the way the objects themselves are viewed. I do not like the thought “a pot can only be about utility or as a single object.” That thought does not acknowledge the function outside of its uses or how it communicates to its neighbor. I use multiples to create an environment. Each pot I throw is just one small part of the work; the work not complete if one is missing. Like my thoughts and feelings for my culture, my work cannot be separated into bits. They exist together, building and growing with one another.

this is very strong body of work which celebrates traditional Korean forms and aesthetics as objects of contemporary culture. This work is original in its form. The skill and craftsmanship is strong and the concept is clearly communicated through the installation work.
