"I am fascinated by the spontaneous lines, forms, and spaces 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 Korean traditional ceramics, which embraces 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.
In terms of state of mind and physical creativity, spontaneity and vitality empowered by balance and harmony is one of the important elements of my work process.
My work is a reflection of my journey of self-examination and personal growth, exploring the depth of humanity, nature, and life through the inspiration derived from the intrinsic quality of clay and nature's elements."
