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. Each piece evolves as she works. “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 glazed, gourd-shaped vessels are one of her utilitarian designs that we are offering. They are wonderful to hold and use. We love the contrast between the bone-colored exterior surface and the pale celadon of the interior glaze; the black version has the surface quality of obsidian. And as with all of Young Mi’s work, these vessels lend a living sculptural presence to its environment.
