Sungchul Kim
Follow

Sungchul Kim’s most notable works are oil lamps in the style of Korean moon lamps, which use the reflective properties of glazed porcelain and the structure’s shape to magnify the luminosity of a small flame. Kim’s lamps are made of two wheel-thrown halves placed one on top of the other to create an egg-shaped form. To ensure a near-perfect appearance, he makes one half larger than the other and sands it down after firing so that it fits the smaller piece exactly. Kim strives to capture the qualities of a river-worn stone in these objects, so that they are various in appearance but perfect unto themselves.
