Bio

My parents grew up under rough Korea war my generation grew up being taught literacy from school and after school  take a part as a family member.

It wasn’t always big matter that what their children have talent, thought and interested of. 

I moved to Vancouver  3 years ago and discovered accidentally walks in the pottery studio started as for a half curiosity and half spare time. It is became a tool that found another myself in me

I’d like to make ceramic not only useful for daily life but also good for look at. it is come from traditional Korean motive which I’ve touched, felt and used also from European modern simple style where I’ve lived for 10 years.

 

My parents grew up in the shadow of the Korean War and my generation was expected to work hard in school and then help out at home.
It often didn’t matter what the childs talents, thoughts or interest were and for better or for worse, that’s how I was taught to approach life.
While I had experimented a bit with photography and drawing, my creative side was always superseded by my work.

I moved to Vancouver in 2009  and accidentally discovered a nearby pottery studio…partly out of curiosity and partly due to having spare time, I started making pottery….and found that it was a tool that brought out another ‘me’.

I like to make pottery and ceramics, not just for functionality, but also objects that are nice to look at..or sometimes even challenge you.
I draw inspiration not only from traditional Korean patterns, but also modern European style, drawn from the 10 years I lived in Europe.
