Saeam Kwon. a ceramist born and raised in South Korea, currently based in Berlin, Germany since 2017. Director and maker of an independent ceramic brand, working as a freelance pottery instructor.
"I have been constantly motivating to find various ways to work with clays. it can be sculptural or functional. feeling and emotions that are too hard to put into words can be aptly expressed with clay.
...describing work is not always relevant, especially when the work is made for a visual and physical experience. Although, I would describe my work as 'A journey to find SOMETHING', to find the better way to freely express myself.
Through my work, I invite you to appreciate the beauty of simplicity, connect with the rich heritage of Korean ceramics, and explore the balance between tradition and modernity. "
