I create ceramic works in the Pyrenees mountains, France. My pieces are all handbuilt using ancestral techniques of coiling, pinching and slab building. I appreciate this technique because it preserves the traces of the hands and their movements, which makes each piece unique.

It’s important for me that the pieces also preserve the traces of the place where we live, the life around us. That’s why I integrate in my works wild clays, local wood ashes, granite, and other rocks found while walking around.

My works, often inspired by Korean culture in which I grew up, seek to evoke serenity and tranquility in everyday life.
