stirring up the meltingpot

My love for eating and the right presentation of food, has led me to the art of ceramics. I've collected dishes and other ceramics ever since I began traveling the world as a fashion model. I started designing my own pottery after enrolling in a ceramics class some 15 years ago. I am inspired by archeological finds and tribal art.

This is one of the artworks cited by the authors, a pot “covered with various spiral patterns … This particular style of vessel, known as Moroiso, was made around 4000 BC by people of the Jomon culture, a relatively peaceful and non-stratified society of prehistoric Japan.” (Photo taken by Tom Froese at the Archaeological Museum of Kokugakuin University, Tokyo, Japan, via the paper)

logpot
The pots are hand built using the coil method, polished with a stone and fired over a campfire in a 5-gallon can with sawdust or cow dung. A simple technology that can be done almost anywhere using a minimum of resources. The materials incorporated onto the pots after they have been fired have all been found dead – hit by cars, washed-up on the beach, brought in by the cat – or they are by-products of the foods we eat, usually thrown away. I’m not focusing on death, I’m trying to hold-onto the beauty of life.

Yi Kang-hyo, or Kang-Hyo Lee as he is sometimes called, is known for his innovations on traditional Punchong pottery. Indigenous Korean clays are dark in colour and rich in iron oxide, which fires to a deep chocolate brown. White slip was added to coat the brown clay and lighten the colour of the pots. An ash glaze is applied thinly, giving the pot a pale jade green or soft grey blue tinge.
In this jar, Yi uses the slip in a spontaneous and fluid way,  At the same time, the traditional ingredients of Punchong are unchanged: dark clay, white slip, and an ash glaze.
