이 세상은 약간씩 다른 작은 존재들의 연약한 집합체이다. 나는 많은 작은 점토 조각들로 구성된 작품을 통하여 이런 세상을 표현한다. 소성을 마친 후 딱딱해진 점토는 그 이전의 상태로 돌아갈 수 없다. 이 점이 나에게 힘, 설득력 그리고 아름다움을 준다.

The world is a fragile gathering of small, slightly different existences. I express that by my work, which consists of many small parts of clay. After firing, clay becomes hard and cannot revert as a substance. That makes me feel strength, persuasiveness, and beauty.
