Choi Bo-ram South Korean, b. 1985


Choi Bo-ram reinterprets traditional, blue and white pottery into arresting optically surreal sculptures. The artist works with coarse stoneware and uses small, cloud-like clay patches to create her structures. She applies delicate line drawings to the surface, connecting one ‘patch’ to another.  Her Blue Jars are left unglazed to reveal the hand-crafted textures that lie beneath the endless lines. The contrasting dense blue interiors of the jars are achieved using liquid cobalt, absorbed into the raw clay while dripping down and around the artist’s restless finger marks.
