A young and talented ceramic artist, Park experiments with traditional celadon glazes within her work, achieving a bold and contemporary, tonal elegance. Right after completing a master’s degree at Seoul National University, Park had been attracting attention from notable institutes and collectors in Korea, China and Germany.
Park describes this series as ‘Polygonal bottles’ and maintains their fundamental use as vessels for Korean and Japanese sake. The artist forms the flawless bottles on the potter’s wheel, trimming the curves from the body to create the straight segments of the polygon. By applying glazes of varying thicknesses between and on the resulting lines, Park creates an illusion of additional volume.
