인간의 형태와 자연에 내재된 생식과 견제라는 개념이 나의 도자기 용기 제작과정에 활력을 준다. 기능성, 신성함, 아름다움을 용기 형태로 구현하는 일은 인간의 의식만큼이나 오래된 것이다. 신화와 언어가 투영된 도자기는 끝없는 영감의 원천이다.

Notions of fecundity and containment intrinsic to the human form and the natural world animate the making of my ceramic vessels. The embodiment of utility, divinity, and beauty in the vessel form is as ancient as human consciousness. Projected through mythology and language, it is an endless source of inspiration.
