Instinctive by Minwook Kim

Selected Finalist at the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2022.

Created using wet green wood, the series utilises the natural expansions and contractions of the material as it dries. Carved using a wood-turning lathe, these wafer-thin bowls are then clamped and stapled with copper, a nod to the Japanese tradition of kintsugi, and treated with water to encourage the surface to become wavy and distorted. Left dry and unoiled, one is charred, the second dyed, the third washed, and the final one is left unfinished to showcase the natural colors of the wood
