I produce ranges of functional ware, exploring traditional and
contemporary aesthetics. I use porcelain and stoneware as the main
materials to produce my work.
As a maker, I am very much interested in the environment I am living
in. I draw inspiration from my immediate surroundings. Architecture
plays a large part in this assimilation. I am intrigued by the volumes and
spaces contained within buildings. Textures and colors I find around
me enrich my visual and tactile sensibility, continuously driving new
paths of investigation.
By growing up and being educated in a variety of countries- Korea,
Brazil, America and England- I have been exposed to different cultures,
tastes and aesthetics. My work is an attempt to explore and to
reconcile these aspects.
I am fascinated about how everyday objects can dictate a cultural
habit and vice versa. It is intriguing how these objects being in
different places, integrated into different peoples life can bring
different meanings or feelings with them. And, conversely, how the
same objects can also affect their surrounding.
For me, making is a continuous journey and an attempt to understand
my present environment. The idea of how this journey is revealed to
someone through my work intrigues me.
