HoJung Kim is an artist from South Korea, using ceramics to explore the relationship between colours, community and material investigation. Kim has exhibited within the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia. Before Kim came to the Royal College of Art, she focused on installation and fine art based ceramic works. She challenged herself to develop a new process that expresses her identity and form a material language as her own voice. During her studies at the RCA, HoJung Kim has applied a mixture of traditional craft techniques and industrial methods to create objects which invoke a sense of elegance.
I create objects that have an awareness of the space which they occupy, through the movement of colours within a variety of forms. While at the Royal College of Art I have found that material exploration and investigation of different production processes can ignite a project. It is in this manner that I developed the surface qualities of these objects; which explore movement and harmony - colours drift across the forms. The world is unfathomably diverse consisting of many cultures each with unique habits and traditions. This collection aims to capture something of this diversity through the touch of the maker’s hand, colour and clay.
