Hyejeong Kim's work reflects her personal story. The Carpel series, which she started in 2010, is formed on a wheel, then deformed or maimed in some way. As she was born with a congenital venous malformation, embodying life has been a quest for her. Mastering the craft of pottery was a part of the journey. Her ceramic art focusses on simplicity in the sophisticated lines and the tranquil beauty in the subtle tone of glazes she has developed through many years of study.
"When I see my pots taking on organic shapes, they remind me of the similarities between the skin/pods and my pots. They divide the outside from the inside but allow both sides to communicate. The skin can be a metaphor for memories."
