자연환경과 그 속에서 삶을 일군 사람, 사람의 외형적 모습, 내면적 이미지를 단순한 기(그릇)의 형태로 축약하고 싶다. 작업 내내 그릇이 지닌 조형 요소의 세부적인 형태에 주목하는 것이 아니라 전체를 보고 그릇을 사물이 아닌 인격체로 보고자 했다. 그릇 부분에 인간의 신체와 관련된 단어인, 발, 귀, 어깨, 허리 등의 호칭을 부여한 의미를 깨달으며 기(그릇)와 사람이 관련된 오래된 은유의 이미지로 군상 작업을 할 수 있었다. 그래서 군상 작업은 여러 개의 그릇이 쌓여 인물 군상이 되기도 했다가 입체가 되기도 하는 오브제이다. 각 지역의 자연환경에 맞추어 발전해온 기의 형태가 새로운 인물로 표현되었다.

I want to encompass the natural environment and the external appearance and inner side of people who have lived there in the form of a simple vessel. Throughout the entire course of working on a vessel, I have tried to picture the vessel in its entirety rather than focusing on details of formative elements inherent to vessels, and regard vessels as living things with personalities like humans, rather than objects. I learned the meaning of names given to each part of a vessel, as we can see from names like 'foot,' 'ear,' 'shoulder' and 'waist' of a vessel, all of which refer to parts of the human body. I created a large group of vessels according to the time-honored metaphor of images of vessels related to humans. Vessels piled up create an image of a group of people or a three-dimensional sculpture like a piece of fine art. Shapes of vessels that have developed according to the natural environment of each region are integrated to express an image of new human figure.
