Vessel with Plantain Surface Decoration by Sangwook Huh

Vessel  /  Classical   Geometric   Conceptual
Selected Finalist at the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2022.

Drawing on the ancient 14th-century technique of buncheong, meaning to powder the surface, part of a rich ceramic tradition in Korea, this white slip brushed ceramic vessel has been assembled from two large bowls thrown on the wheel.   The vessel’s surface is treated like a painting, first layered with slip and brushed with iron oxide to create a plantain pattern, and then finished with a layer of silver – a modern juxtaposition against the historical white and blue. Inspired by the writings of Taejoon Lee, the piece evokes the exotic sensibility of landscape and the layers of time.
