도자기는 끊임없는 호기심의 대상이다. 도자기의 제작과정, 느낌, 형태, 표면을 비롯하여 집안에서 어떤 존재로 대접받는가, 예술 작품인가, 생활 도구인가, 아니면 그림인가 등 이 모두가 호기심을 유발한다. 나는 조각을 연상시키면서도 기능을 존중하는, 조형성을 갖추면서도 기능성이 뛰어난 형태를 추구한다. 이런 형태의 실용 도자기는 대담하면서도 멋있다.

Pottery is a continuous curiosity; how it’s made, how it feels, its shape, its surface, how it exists in a home as an object, or a tool, or maybe an image. When making pottery, I search for poised forms that suggest sculpture, respect utility, and perform well; they should be confident and handsome.
