Tell us about your background and inspiration?

I was born in Seoul, South Korea and completed my B.F.A there and moved to London in order to do an MA at the Royal College of Art. Now I live in London – since 2008. I am interested in European ceramics, especially English satirical ceramics from the 18th century and the 19th century. Figurines that were made for striking up a conversation on a table inspire me, along with the historical background of that time.
