Jin Eui Kim:
Looking at these works make you dizzy. I talked to the artist and he said his ceramics are about challenging perceptions of reality. I had to touch them to see if the surfaces were smooth or whether they are ridged, following the line of the decoration - they are ridged. I had to touch the black dots in the middle to see if there is a hole there - there is not. So, most of these are not vessels, but sculptures.
The lid in these jars is reversible - you can see both ways of using them in the two jars here.
