TRACE SERIES / NO.01
Table lampAluminium, GlassCasting, Polishing, Traditional clay technic
Sometime, I am inspired by natural phenomena around us. Every year, I go to coast, mountain, or the highest building in the city to see the first sunrise. Sunlight covers all over complex things in the world and makes totally new images. This kind of phenomenon is very interesting to me. It makes beautiful contrast when sunlight meets color and texture of objects. From this inspiration, I try to reinterpret the phenomenon in my own way. I make unique clay form by hand to show natural texture and throw it to the ground to make unexpected shape. Then I cut the clay with wire to express trace of light. This clay become a master piece for metal casting. Through this process, I integrate clay technique by hand with metal casting for making unique piece. After metal casting with aluminum, cut side was polished. In the same way, every piece become to have unique form. Trace series looks like sculpture, functional or decorative object. I would like to play between art and design. For this project, I worked with super craftsman in Uljiro located in the center of Seoul. They have special techniques at metal works. They are always great helpful for designer so that I collaborate with them.
