나는 몰딩 기법을 사용하여 형태와 미를 추구한다. 몰딩 기법은 대량생산에 사용되는 수단이라고 간주될 수 있다. 나의 경험에 비추어 보면 일반적으로 물레 작업, 판 성형 등 몰딩 기법이 아닌 것이 전형적인 도자 기법이라고 추측되는 경향이 있다. 나의 작품 전시를 통해 관람객들에게 몰딩 기법을 이용한 형태의 전문성과 가능성을 인식시키고자 한다.

I am pursuing the form and aesthetic which are made by molding technique. Molding technique can be regarded as a tool of mass production. From my experience, people tend to suppose that other techniques such as throwing and slab building are typical of ceramics. Through the exhibition of my works, I would like you to recognize the speciality and possibility of form by molding technique.
