차와 도자는 뗄레야 뗄 수 없는 관계를 맺고 있다. 찻그릇을 통해 마주한 존재들과 관계를 맺고 , '차'라는 매개체로 내적인 위로를 받기도 한다. 차는 단순한 음료가 아닌 문화이다. 문화는 삶의 질을 향상시키고 그 안에서 아름다움의 가치를 찾게된다. 순백의 백자는 차의 色,香,味를 온전하게 담아 내어준다. 백자에 깃든 아름다움과 편안함으로 한국의 미를 갖춘 찻그릇을 완성시키고자 하였다.

Tea and pottery are in inseparable relationship. Tea is not just a beverage, but the culture. Culture improves the quality of life, and we can find the beauty within. "찻자리" (the customary time for tea) is where people come together to enjoy tea and build relationships with both visible and invisible things because "차" (tea) is the medium to receive the inner healing. The white porcelains were chosen carefully to serve the purpose which was to reserve the beauty, the culture, and the flavor, scent, and color of the natural tea. The teawares were made with one philosophy in mind. It is to intertwine the beauty in Korean culture with the beauty of calmness in "백자" (white porcelain).
