SUN KIM

SUN KIM


 Born in Saudi Arabia, Korean ceramicist Sun Kim grew up in Brazil, where she studied Fine Art in Sao Paulo.  It was here Sun was introduced to ceramics by one of Brazil’s most eminent ceramicists, Lucia Ramenzoni. A passion for working with clay was cultivated during her first BA leading to a second at Alfred University in New York. This continued study lead Sun to develop and expand her practice to encompass throwing and hand-building. In 2004 Sun moved to England to work as an assistant to potter and author Edmund de Waal, who she still works for today, alongside her own studio which she set up in 2007.

Sun’s distinctive functional ceramics explore and reconcile the different cultures, tastes and aesthetics which she was exposed to growing up, as well as continually taking inspiration from her surroundings. With porcelain and stoneware, Sun creates ceramics which combine both traditional and contemporary aesthetics. Her works originate on the potters wheel and are subsequently cut and assembled using hand building techniques. Sun's practice investigates form and shape through her making process.

Sun’s work is widely exhibited throughout the UK and Europe and is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Northern Ireland and Mashiko Museum of Ceramic Art, Japan.
