Jung Se-wook

¡§ººøÌ                        Jung Se-wo

In his works, Jung Se-wook not only explores the beauty of white porcelain, but also wishes to reflect on the topic of social integration within modern society. The artist gives his works a spherical form and then achieves a variety of textures and decoration through different glazes and techniques, leading to the creation of pots which share a similar form, but different characters.

The artist decorates his pots with abstract decorations, geometrical patterns and letters from the Korean writing system (hangeul) using traditional inlay and sgraffito techniques. He may combine different glazes in one work, leading to contrasting textures, or choose only one.
