WHAT IT IS
Ceramic artist, Shim Sa-young created the White Memories Collection (Created in year 2015) that contains the traces of time and memory by applying more than 50 to 60 layers of clay slurry and 'human touch'; pushed and piled up. Created as a multi-purpose flat plate that shows off the matter side of the earth.
Each unique matiere is expressed by painting the soil with a brush and over-painting it dozens of times. The texture coordinated with the subtle colour makes no matter what the dish is, looks great.
Artist words: The products of human handiwork have long pursued the beauty of mankind while fulfilling human desire for creation. Objects condensed with the repetition and labor of human delicate touches, physical actions and time are like a medium that connects modern people who live breathlessly to a priori nature.
In this respect, my work can be said to be a journey between ‘me’ and the ‘material’, where I enjoy the properties of soil with the senses of my hands and find the beauty of crafts through repetitive and conscious traces. My work, which contains traces of handwork without going against the physical properties of the natural material, aims to convey the value and beauty of handiwork by connecting the artist, the material, and the use of the object.
