“I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. After earning a BFA and MFA in ceramics, I moved to the U.S. and have been making pots ever since. I am fascinated by spontaneous lines, forms, and space I find in nature and objects and the depth and character within them that show the passage of time. I am also inspired and influenced by traditional Korean ceramics, which embrace the beauty of simplicity, vitality, profoundness, and imperfections. This intrinsic beauty—which requires time, dedication to mastering techniques, and understanding the materials and spontaneity of the process of creation—is what I value and strive for in my work. Spontaneity and vitality, empowered by balance and harmony are important elements of my work process. My work is a reflection of my self-examination and growth through contemplations on human nature, life, and myself through the natural characteristics of clay and aspects of nature.”
