For someone who loves both paper and ceramics as well as textiles like I do the work of Jong Jin Park is a seductive delight. (image above from here) My fingers itch to explore the works, and the minimalism enthuses me to try harder myself.
My practice explores the remarkable ability of ceramics to deceive the eye. By using tissue paper and clay slip, I can make various materials looks like paper, wood and stratum but it is definitely ceramics at the same time. These effects meet with simple shapes and structures, contrasting with the straight porcelain. My practice asks us to think what is real? At the same time, you experience another deception "how was it made?" I always enjoy the audience's reaction to my work.
