Design Creative Of The Week: Sun Ae Kim [Ceramics/Jewelry/Glass]
The hottest new talent of the week brought to you by PSFK x Arts Thread. This week a ceramics design that is inspired by historical events and depicts little vingettes on her pieces.
Our Creative of the Week, chosen from ARTS THREAD’s portfolios, is Sun Ae Kim, a graduate of the Royal College of Art’s MA Ceramics & Glass program.
Why we like Sun Ae Kim’s work: we love the highly decorative quality of her work and it’s ability to rework traditional ceramic themes in new ways.
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.
