Young Mi Kim is a South Korean ceramicist who works and teaches in Woodstock, New York. Her ceramic sculptures are slowly and carefully hand built. She layers strands of clay in a coil, patiently working upward as she discovers the shape. Young Mi writes, “In essence, each layer marks time and space. When I hand build my pots, it is a form of meditation. It is my attempt to live in grace: like an open vessel, empty and yet full.”
These small black-glazed bowls and a larger serving bowl are a few of her utilitarian pieces that we are offering. They have a particularly elemental quality, as if they could have been formed from lava. And as with all of Young Mi’s work, they lend a living sculptural presence to their environment.
