Kim Seong Tae

Kim Seong Tae is a Korean ceramic master who has his own studio and is the owner of Seongwol Ceramics which is located in Icheon, South Korea. I actually saw his work while traveling in Korea, and so I researched this artist more. The clip is from when he was featured in a dedication showcase which included four other Korean ceramic masters in the the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA). He is known for using layers of slip and cutting into the clay to create a layered effect with colors, and he enjoys cutting out shapes in his pots for decoration and balance. He also works with celadon and recreates those traditional asian-inspired ceramic pieces that are delicate and beautiful in their simplicity.
