책가도 형식의 부조로 끊임없이 공부하고 작업하는 도예가로서의 일상을 표현한다. 흙을 다지고 두드리며 작업을 하지만 흙은 언제든지 휘고 갈라지는 성질을 드러낸다. 그러면 다시 갈고 메워 본래 만들고자 했던 선과 면을 찾아간다. 흙을 다루는 도예가의 치밀함과 인내심으로 채워지는 시간, 작업의 산물, 그리고 그들의 조합으로 만들어내는 도예가의 서재.

My work expresses my everyday living as a ceramic artist constantly studying and working to recreate two-dimensional traditional paintings in books and scholars’ paraphernalia as relief carving. Beating and kneading clay reveals its properties: it bends and can crack at any time. Then, I rub and fill in the cracks again and continue my search for the lines and planes I intend to create. Time filled with the elaboration and patience of a potter dealing with clay and labor are all combined to create a potter’s library.
