About

I am a potter who produces handmade pottery on the potter’s wheel, expressing the qualities of the stoneware and porcelain clays that I use. Formal forms and patterns are inspired by traditional Korean and Japanese aesthetics, precisely constructed and encouraged to warp during the firing process, distorting and adding depth to patterns on the surface. This abstracts and encourages irregularities that communicate clays original plastic state. The use of these pots are hugely important, not only visual use but also exploring through touch. I perceive making and firing as one complete design process acting as a catalyst to encourage spontaneity in my work. My pots gain their individual characteristics from a variety of reduction firing processes including; Wood, Soda and Gas firing.
